Ripe Forecast for Richmond Beach Strawberry Festival on Saturday

Sunny skies are in the forecast for the 14th Annual Strawberry Fest, with live local music, food from local restaurants, games and activities for the kids, a walking history tour and lots more.

Sunny skies are in the forecast for the 14th annual Richmond Beach Strawberry Festival this Saturday noon to 5 p.m., with live local music, food from local restaurants, a walking tour of the community’s history, an arts and crafts show and more.

The main fest will be at Richmond Beach Community Park (2201 NW 197th Street), where the Richmond Beach Community Association will, of course, be serving strawberry shortcake, and there will be games and activities for the kids.

The walking tour by the Shoreline Historical Museum begins at 1 p.m. Saturday outside the Richmond Beach Library and is led by museum director Vicki Stiles -- who says there is still quite a bit of history to see. There are some hills on the walk.

Associated with the festival are three events nearby: The Arts and Crafts Show at Richmond Beach Library, May 10 from 6-9 p.m. and May 11 from 10 a.m. to 5p.m.; Richmond Beach Rehab's Car Show (May 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.); and a Mother's Day Plant Sale at the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden, May 10-12 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For details on these three events, click here.

Because of limited parking at the venues, off-site parking and shuttle service to all four events will be provided on Saturday at Richmond Beach Congregational Church (1512 NW 195th). Guests are encouraged to use the shuttle, and Richmond Beach residents are encouraged to walk or carpool.

For full details of the weekend’s activities, see the Richmond Beach Community Association web site here.

FYI, the Shoreline Historical Museum notes that anyone who would like to go on the history walk but finds the hill portion a barrier, can meet the group at NW 195th Place and 24th Avenue NW, in front of the old library (now Columbia Valuation).
