Florida remains one of the most interesting states in the country from a cultural point of view. Its holiday calendar features hundreds of fun activities, many of which may seem rather unusual to foreign visitors. The picturesque town of Plant City is a permanent venue for the annual Strawberry Festival that is a very interesting agricultural event. It takes place in late February-early March and usually lasts for two weeks; that’s the time to reap a harvest.
Large-scale strawberry fields are a major feature of Florida; hundreds of varieties are grown there. The festival features interesting exhibitions and agricultural workshops; guests that are far from the cultivation are offered to taste the best varieties of berries. The Strawberry Festival is attended by the best farm staff. During the festival, well-known chefs cook delicious desserts from berries.
City of Sarasota is home to one of the youngest, but no less interesting holidays - the Festival of chalk drawings. This is a unique event dedicated to one of the most unusual trends in contemporary culture. The festival takes place in November and lasts for 10 days, during which a huge number of beautiful three-dimensional drawings appear on the asphalt of city streets and squares.
