Bradley Dubuque, 7, of Snohomish, has had quite enough of strawberry shortcake after consuming his third helping in the 5- to 7-year-old division of the Strawberry Shortcake-Eating Contest, while fellow contestant Keiton Wrzesinski, 7, of Arlington, slurps and chews his fifth portion on the way to victory at the Strawberry Festival as Asbery Field in 2005.
The Trike Race returns this year at 7 tonight, along with a full slate of entertainment, the Market at Asbery Field and a strawberry-eating contest.
The Kiddy Parade is scheduled for 6 p.m. Saturday, followed by the Grand Parade at 7:30 p.m. and fireworks at 10 p.m. at the Public Works facility.
For the first time, there also will be beer. The Kiwanis Beer Garden will serve throughout the weekend on Seventh Street.
And, of course, what would the Strawberry Festival be without strawberry shortcake? The Masonic Lodge will sell the dessert throughout the weekend.
