WAVY News 10 spoke to a woman who helped organize the first festival back in 1983.

“There’s only three of us that were on the original committee. We never had any idea it would bring this many people. I mean people coming here from Maryland and Washington, D.C. It makes me happy,” said Jack Burroughs, Pungo Strawberry Festival.

The Pungo Strawberry Festival continues Sunday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. It is located on Princess Anne Road near Indian River. There is often a long line of traffic to get in, so be sure to give yourself some extra time.
