South Boston News / May 10, 2018
It’s time again to celebrate the delicious strawberry at the second annual Strawberry Festival, Saturday from 2-9 p.m. at Halifax Square Shopping Center.

There’ll be great musical entertainment featured at the festival, which is set to conclude with a fireworks show, weather permitting — and the forecast is for a clear and warm day.

At least 34 food vendors are expected to be on hand, and there will be many other vendors offering a wide variety of crafts and products.

For the kids, the festival is bringing back the Bouncy House and a visit by Marlon the Magician. Many games will be offered throughout the day.

There’ll also be prizes — including a vacation package for a Myrtle Beach getaway, tickets to the South Boston Speedway race, and a guest stay at the Charles Bass House in South Boston, with happy hour refreshments, breakfast and access to the hot tub included.

Other lucky winners will receive the gift of dinner for two at Molasses Grill in Halifax, a dozen chocolate-covered strawberries from CC Unique Creations, and a surprise gift from Aarons.

Tinkers Car Club will be a part of the festival, with a 5 p.m. cruise-in providing guests the opportunity to inspect their vehicles.

The first 400 people at the festival will receive a free strawberry cupcake from Frosted, and 400 early guests will get a chocolate-covered strawberry prepared by CC Unique Creations.

All proceeds from the festival will go to the Healthy Harvest Community Garden, which serves residents of Halifax County by providing healthy, nutritious, sustainably grown produce to those who might not have access to fresh food.
