MONROE, CT — Monroe Congregational Church’s Strawberry Festival attracted a crowd on Saturday, when volunteers served strawberry shortcake, smoothies and strawberries dipped in milk, dark and white chocolate.
The church’s famous strawberry glaze pie sold out early, but more pies will be available Sunday. “We sold 100 pies between 10 and 12:30,” said Ann Zeiner, a longtime volunteer.
The festival also had food trucks, Italian ice and kettle corn on the center green, where crafters sold clothes, jewelry, art, bird houses and other items. The Goldrush Band, founded by Mary Beth and Gary Sippin, performed live music and a historical display could be seen inside the church.
The event continues this Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Here are some photos from Saturday:
