The 64th annual Mattituck Lions Club Strawberry Festival officially kicked off Thursday with hulling night. The hundreds of volunteers who helped prepare all the strawberries for the festival received a strawberry daiquiri.
The four-day festival features a full slate of events Saturday, including the crowning of the Strawberry Queen at 3 p.m. and the return of the shortcake-eating contest at 5 p.m.
The hamlet of Mattituck is home to many attractions for locals and weekend visitors. From the popular Love Lane, where you will find some of our favorite businesses, to Mattituck Inlet, beaches and backroads surrounded by farmland, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
