Another MGF Strawberry Festival is in the books. We were ready for adverse weather on June 24 with tents, umbrellas and rain gear, but the downpour soon ceased and by afternoon it was a picture-perfect day for hayrides, face painting, tie-dying and games — not to mention a cookout on the lawn with lots of sweet, creamy strawberry shortcake (recipe!) for dessert.

Once again the Flying Elbows, Martha’s Vineyard’s premier old-timey band, filled the air with fiddle tunes — and this year there was dancing, too, as clogger Gail Stephens provided sprightly foot percussion for their infectious rhythms.

We thank all who took part in this family affair, which included a special visit from some adorable lambs born at the Farm Institute this spring. Our Instagram video offers a 30-second slice of the fun and music.

Don’t miss our next festival!
