Burien’s annual Wild Strawberry Festival (we’re a Sponsor) will be held the weekend of June 16-17 at Town Square Park, with lots of great live music, performers, arts, crafts, food, vendors and more!

As usual, your original (and award-winning) B-Town Bloggers will be ‘blogging live’ from a tent at the fest, as well as playing all-local music from SoKing Internet Radio, so be sure to make a point of finding our booth.

Also, here’s a promo video that was just released by our friends at Burien Parks:
