  1. Hopefully there will really be strawberries at the Strawberry Festival this year. Does anyone know what happened last year?

  2. The Burien Arts Association, founders of the Burien Strawberry Festival, provided strawberry shortcake last year and will again this year. Look for a bigger booth at 152nd and 5th Pl. SW
