Moulton’s Sweet Event Set for April 30 – May 1
Decatur, Ala. – After cancelling due to the COVID-19 pandemic last year, Moulton’s berry delicious event returns at the end of this month for two days of family fun, fresh strawberries and live music. Now in its sixth year, the Strawberry Festival is set for April 30-May 1 with activities taking place at a new location, the Lions Club Fairgrounds.
Parents in search of family-friendly activities will want to put the Strawberry Festival on their schedule of things to do. Activities include inflatables, bungie jumps, a petting zoo, pig squeal and a fire truck display. A variety of contests are lined up for adults and children to take part in. On May 1, the Strawberry Festival Pageant begins at noon at the Moulton Lion’s Club. All proceeds will go toward the needs of foster children in Lawrence County. The mud volleyball tournament also gets underway at noon in the empty lot west of the Moulton Senior Center. Proceeds will go to athletics for all special needs athletes.
Mouthwatering strawberries, the highlight of the two-day event, will be available to purchase and organizers suggest arriving early to purchase the berries before supplies run out. Farmers will be on hand to offer tips and suggestions for storing and preparing.
The festival also showcases gospel groups, oldies and folk performers, bands and choral groups from local high schools and rising stars from across the region. Festival goers are encouraged to bring lawn chairs as ongoing live music fills the air both days on two stages. Additional activities include a classic car/truck/motorcycle show, a one-mile trail bike ride, horse and buggy rides and arts and crafts vendors.
Festival hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, April 30 and 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 1. All activities will take place at the Lions Club Fairgrounds located at 455 School Street in Moulton unless otherwise noted. Admission is $1 before 5 p.m. and $2 after 5 p.m. both days. Proceeds benefit the Jesse Owens Runners’ Club and local schools.
