Strawberry shortcake, chocolate-covered strawberries and strawberry salsa are just a few of the things that one can find at this yearâ€™s East Lincoln Strawberry Festival.
The East Lincoln High School Parent Teacher Association is busy planning the event.
The festival will be held Saturday, May 15 at the schoolâ€™s football stadium from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
So far the festival is planned to have 42 vendors, including 10 food vendors.
There will also be a lot of informational booths, a silent auction, a DJ and live entertainment.
This yearâ€™s bands are Dirt Creek Bluegrass band, Lost and Found, Something Jed, Ray Guns and Just for Tonite.
For the children there will be pony rides, games and face painting.
A hot air balloon will also be available for those who want to venture into the sky. It will cost $5 for students and $10 for adults.
The hot air balloon can only be used weather permitting. It will be available on a first come, first serve basis and most likely will be a morning activity.
Vicky Wilson, chairwoman of the festival, said they are still looking for vendors, especially arts and craft vendors, including pottery and jewelry.
