Lincolnville — Lincolnville celebrated its 20th annual Strawberry Festival Saturday, July 12. A sizable crowd gathered to watch the parade, listen to live music, and enjoy a variety of strawberry desserts among other activities.

The annual festival is hosted by United Christian Church in Lincolnville and typically draws several hundred people, who consume 175 to 200 pounds of strawberries — organizers typically plan for around 500 shortcakes.
