    In desperate need of a homemade strawberry shortcake?

    Don't care that we just assumed the lack of homemade strawberry shortcake in your life is a serious problem?

    Resolve this terrible situation at the 32nd annual Strawberry Festival in Roanoke, Va. In addition to  abundant homemade strawberry shortcakes, you'll also be in the vicinity of hundreds of chocolate-dipped strawberries, strawberry sundaes and slushies.

    The festival runs Friday, May 4 to Saturday, May 5 at 7815 Williamson Road in Roanoke. Can't make it? Order a festival kit by May 2 to have the homemade shortcake goodness mailed to your home.

    With 30,000+ attendees possibly showing up at this free (thank you!) event this weekend, it's no wonder why they need hundreds of delectable strawberry treats on hand. But your purchase of the nom-able goodness will also benefit the Community School, so please, go all out. 

    You'll also find live music, art and craft vendors and kids' activities. The festival runs Friday, May 4 (10 a.m.-5:30 p.m.) and Saturday, May 5 (10 a.m.-4 p.m.) at 7815 Williamson Road in Roanoke, about four hours southwest of downtown D.C.
