It's not called the Strawberry Festival anymore
but there was still Strawberry Shortcake to eat!

The Richmond Beach Celebration was held on Saturday, May 11, 2019. Under the umbrella of the Celebration, Richmond Beach Rehab held a car show (see previous article) and Kruckeberg held their Mother's' Day Plant Sale. 

At Richmond Beach Park, adjacent to the library, the party went on, with music, a kiddie parade, a book sale, Strawberry Shortcake, booths, food trucks, and kids' activities.

Shorewood High School students, Mercy, on left, and Darby, draw with colored chalk on the east wall to encourage little kids to join in with their artwork. Saturday's festival started off with a kiddie parade.

The percussion section from the Shorewood High School band led the children on a couple laps around the park.

Community organizations had booths, Shoreline Fire was there with an aid car, just in case. There were bouncy houses and face painting. The Community Association sold gear.

Throughout the celebration, there was live music. This is Commander Mojo and the Horns of Discontent - quite good, we hear.

It takes hundreds of volunteers to put on an event like this - but everyone seems to have fun. If you would like to be involved with the next event, contact the RBCA.
