Strawberry Festival Proves to Be Best Yet
by Lynne Ober There was beautiful weather for the strawberry festival held on the grounds of the Litchfield Presbyterian Church. As always, the strawberries were especially ripe, juicy, and local. There’s nothing like strawberries grown locally at McQuesten’s Farm, picked at the perfect time, and then served under the sun. People came to enjoy just the strawberries or to have lunch topped off with strawberries. People opted for the Reverend’s “World Famous” grinders, hot dogs, and drinks or a Belgian waffle topped with strawberries as their first course, and finished off with a dessert course of strawberry shortcake. Everyone agreed that once again, this year’s crop of strawberries was the best ever. The Litchfield Historical Society opened the doors to their museum,
where a Civil War exhibit and an exhibit of antique firearms caught everyone’s eye. Gail Barringer said that the museum had a large number of visitors who enjoyed seeing the Civil War exhibit. There was a full slate of afternoon entertainment, starting with an exhibition by the 5th NH Volunteer Regiment Encampment and Drilling. This company recreates and preserves the memory of the Fifth Regiment, which was formed in Concord and commissioned by Governor Berry on August 27, 1861. Today, they offer drilling exhibitions, participate in Civil War reenactments, as well as preserve the memories of the Civil War and New Hampshire’s participation in this war. They set up an encampment as well as recruited children to help them with their drilling. Another crowd-pleaser was the Granite State Cloggers, located in Manchester, who performed their toe-tapping routine. Clogging is a type of folk dancing that pulls its roots from a combination of early European dance, early African-American dance, and traditional Cherokee dance. It’s fun to watch and fun to try to emulate. In addition, children participated in the watermelon seed-spitting contest, donut-eating contest, muffin decorating, 3-legged races, and an egg race, and had their faces painted. For music lovers, the Jon Gaines Jazz Combo performed between 12:30 and 1:30 p.m. As usual, vendors were on the grounds and you could examine some local crafts. If you happened to get hungry again, you could visit the local bake table.
