Louisiana Strawberry Festival

Welcome to another Monday road trip. Today we are at The Strawberry Festival.

This year’s festival is very special to me – I spent for yours in the area going to college and one of my best friends Mom and Aunt are the festivals Grand Marshall. . I can still remember my first taste of strawberry wine at her kitchen table and stirring the strawberry jam. It;s strawberry time in Louisiana.
