Marysville’s 81st Strawberry Festival continues this weekend with a long list of events.

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.
