The festival's parade steps off on Saturday (10am), with with floats, bands, and equestrians.   

Other events at the Strawberry Festival include loads of carnival rides, a Tiny Tots King & Queen Contest, live music, a baby beauty pageant, a red-head round-up, and Friday's cutting of the world's largest strawberry shortcake (6pm) which is served free to more than 2,000 attendees.

Ride-all-day wristbands cost $35 on Friday and $40 the rest of the weekend. Tickets for individual rides can also be purchased separately at $1 per ticket.

The festival is held at the Village Green between Main Street and Euclid Avenue in downtown Garden Grove.
