The second-annual festival will continue Sunday, March 24.
Bunnell resident Calee Lynn eyed a bounty of bright red berries that lined up in front of her stroller at the Palm Coast Strawberry Festival. With her first bite, she gave a satisfied smile.
Hundreds enjoyed the second-annual festival on Saturday, March 23, at Central Park in Town Center. The event, presented by Buckler Promotions, featured Plant City strawberries, a kids zone, pie eating contest, live entertainment and photo op spots.
Admission was $6, but guests could bring a canned good for $1 off. Margaret Buckler, event organizer, said this is the first year they've partnered with Habitat for Humanity, as a portion of the proceeds will go to that nonprofit.
Locals can still enjoy day two of the festival, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, March 24.
