Strawberry Festival delights all ages


Once again, the Bellmore Kiwanis’ and Lions’ festival celebrating tiny red sweets was a hit.

Hundreds of Bellmore and Merrick residents enjoyed the sunny weather at the annual Nassau County Strawberry Festival between May 30 and June 2. Lined on the clubs’ tables were a colorful variety of strawberry offerings, including baked goods and non-alcoholic daiquiris.

The Bellmore Boces School Grounds was also home to several fun carnival rides and live entertainment. Following their afternoon of fun, many festival-goers also went home with handmade crafts, sold by a number of local vendors.
