The fourth annual Upper Union Street Strawberry Fest and Art Show looks to serve up something for everyone on Saturday.
Taking place up and down Union Street between Lakewood Ave. and Van Antwerp Road in Schenectady, the free fest runs from 10am-3pm Saturday, featuring performances by Ramblin Jug Stompers, the Mop and Bucket Co., Fiddlers Tour, Mike Jessop, 2 Broads With a Lotta Sound, the Incredible Larry and more.
Of course, there will also be lots of fun family activities, art exhibits, pony rides, a petting zoo, a dunking booth, craft demonstrations, wine tastings, magicians and much more.
And, naturally enough, there will be all things strawberry – strawberry shortcake, strawberry yogurt parfaits, strawberry lemonade, strawberry salsa, strawberry cream cheese, strawberry cupcakes, strawberry candy, strawberry daiquiris, strawberry tartlets and even special strawberry dog biscuits.
