Seven-year-old Rebecca Natale nicely summed up the main feature of yesterday's Strawberry Festival: strawberry shortcake.
"It's really, really, really, really, really yummy! I love it," she said, kicking her legs up in excitement.
Her 5-year-old sister, Megan Natale, agreed: "I love it," she said, taking another heaping bite.
It was the family's first time at the town's annual Strawberry Festival, said their mother, Tracy Natale, and the girls couldn't wait for their next bit of festival fun.
"Face painting," they exclaimed.
The sidewalks were full of kids with freshly painted faces, holding balloons in one hand and a parent's hand in the other, happily heading to their next activity.
