Sweet on Strawberries

What started in 1960 as a small homecoming has grown into the annual Kirtland Kiwanis Strawberry Festival, a four-day celebration of hometown values and, of course, strawberries. Fresh and juicy, Ohio's favorite berries will be served up in all their glory: on sundaes, in shortcakes, and even dipped in chocolate. If strawberries aren't your thing, there are plenty of fruit-free activities to keep you busy, including rides, a midway, a flea market, and a craft show. The big parade on Friday evening officially kicks off the festivities, although tonight's 7:30 strawberry shortcake eating contest is a don't-miss in our book. Admission is free, and it all happens tonight through Sunday at Kirtland High School, 9150 Chillicothe Rd. in Kirtland. Call 440-256-1181 or visit to learn more. — Max Hayden
