The most famous strawberry in Texas, and therefore the USA is preparing to take the main stage in the garden spot of Atascosa County: Poteet, Texas on the second weekend of April .
Established way back in 1948 as an incentive for Texas servicemen to return to their lives as farmers after mustering out of the military, the strawberry party sees 1000s of people turn out pumping an estimated 10 million dollars into the south Texas economy! Some of the foods:
POTEET EASTERN STAR: Strawberry Shortcake
POTEET STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL: Strawberry Ice Cream
ASSOCIATION OF HOME ECONOMISTS: Chocolate-Dipped Bowl of Strawberries
ST. PHILLIP BENIZI CHURCH: Strawberry Shortcake
ST. PHILIP BENIZI A.C.T.S: Strawberry Cheese Cake
POTEET AGGIE BAND BOOSTERS: Strawberry Nut Bread (Slice)
If strawberries are your thing then you should draw a giant bullseye on your calendar for this event.
