Saugus Historical Society’s annual Strawberry Festival returns to Legion Hall on June 17
Back home in Saugus for Father’s Day weekend? Bring Dad, your family and friends to the Saugus Historical Society’s Strawberry Festival!
Don’t miss out on Saugus’ most delicious tradition! Old-fashioned Strawberry Shortcake brings people together at the Saugus Historical Society’s annual Strawberry Festival on Saturday, June 17. In addition to shortcakes, hot dogs, chips, soda, seltzer water and bottled water will be available.
Strawberry Shortcakes will be $5 each to eat alongside your friends and neighbors at the Legion Hall. Take out is also available – bring your shortcakes on a picnic! Food will be served from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the American Legion Hall at 44 Taylor St.
Want to really join in the fun? Volunteers are needed to ladle out strawberries – if you can lift a spoon, you have the necessary skills. Help serve shortcake for a half hour or hour and get reacquainted with your neighbors or meet some new Saugonians.
Festivities will extend out onto the Roby School Lawn at 23 Main St., where the Saugus Garden Club will be holding its annual plant sale along with local vendors of crafts, “white elephants” and more beginning at 9 a.m.
