Florida remains one of the most culturally interesting states in the country. The state holiday calendar is rich with hundreds of interesting events, many of which may seem quite unusual to foreign guests.
The picturesque town of Plant City is home to the annual Strawberry Festival, a very interesting agricultural celebration. The festival takes place in late February – early March and usually lasts two weeks, it is during this period that the harvest falls.
Large-scale strawberry fields are one of the main features of Florida; hundreds of varieties of the beloved berry are grown here. The festival is marked by interesting exhibitions and agricultural seminars, and guests who are far from cultivating crops are offered to taste the best varieties of berries. Only the best farms of the state, as well as famous chefs, who prepare delicious desserts from the berry, take part in the Strawberry Festival.
