St. Stephen's Strawberry Festival; Heathsville, VA

Crowds and vendors at the Strawberry Festival  There was a large crowd at  the annual Strawberry Festival in Heathsville, VA, on Sat., May 24, 2008.  St. Stephen's Anglican Church  hosts this event every year.  The Strawberry Festival is held on Saturday of the Memorial Day weekend. 

The tiny village of Heathsville nearly bursts at its seams as thousands of people from all around travel from distances up to 200 miles away to shop for arts and crafts, listen to the music, socialize, have lunch, and of course, EAT the famous strawberry shortcake.

I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the event with my husband, his son, daughter-in-law, and grandchildren.  While I browsed through hand made jewlery, paintings, and baked goods, my husband spotted a beautiful hand carved heron made by a local artisan, Herb Lewis.  Hand carved heron

We are now the proud owners of this lovely art piece carved from wood, hand painted and set on a finished base.  There is even a little hand carved turtle on on the wood pieces on the base.  The grandkids had a wonderful time and were especially pleased to get their faces painted for free.
