Travel Haiku - West Tennessee Strawberry Festival


Tennessee Strawberry Festival

Tennessee
Humboldt, just a short drive from Memphis, is home to the West Tennessee Strawberry Festival, one of the oldest festivals in the state. Held the first week in May, it includes parades, street dance, music, a BBQ cook-off, and a beauty pageant.
