Covid-19 restrictions were completely lifted and the health emergency ended in May. This allowed for a return to "business as normal". However, "business as normal" was forever changed by the restrictions imposed during the Covid-19 restrictions. Many things are now more virtual than ever before. Many health precautions have become an everyday way of life. Financial matters are still a concern as costs of supplies, and travel are still high. Many vendors, entertainers and amusement companies have gone out of business during the last few years and those remaining have been forced to raise their rates.
The London Strawberry Festival is held annually the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday after Father's Day in June. Located on ST RT 56, on the downtown historic streets of London. We have rides, games, food (every food vendor has to have something Strawberry!), free nightly entertainment, the largest Cobra Car Show benefiting Cystic Fibrosis, and of course Strawberry Shortcake.
