Back in the old days, ripe strawberries meant Strawberry Socials, Strawberry Festivals and
Strawberry Days. Neighbors would bring a picnic and gather at an area school or church. Each
family would bring their own strawberry specialty for sharing and for bragging rights. The Old
Shingled Church which once stood at Furnace Town was the location of an annual Strawberry Day
from the 1880's until the 1920's as neighbors from area farms and from the Forest gathered to share
news and good food. The present Broomhouse at Furnace Town was used to house strawberry
pickers in its original lactation near Bishopville.
 
Strawberry Day is included in Furnace Town’s daily site admission of $6.00 for adults, $5.00 for
adults over 60 and $3.00 for children 2-13. A special tasting admission is also available, which will

SNOW HILL, MD. Combines are a familiar sight on the Eastern Shore, moving purposefully and efficiently through fields of grain, corn and soy beans, offloading their harvest into waiting trucks. But seeing a combine from afar is very different from being close enough to touch one. The Fifteenth Annual Blessing of the Combines, held in Snow Hill on Saturday August 2nd, will have combines parked on Green Street (after a parade including antique tractors down Route 12), thanks to the owners of these multi-thousand dollar machines. Admission is free.

Festivities begin at 11:00. Exhibits and displays are set up along Green, Pearl and Bank Streets, including a Petting Barnyard, face painting, a soy bean pit, a slide and a moon bounce, with additional activities for children by Lollipop the Clown. Hayrides, carriage and pony rides will be available. The Program Stage will feature local musicians after the arrival of the Parade of Combines. Master of Ceremonies signals the beginning of a brief program, featuring a keynote speaker. Festival food vendors on Bank Street join Harvest Moon, Miss Patticake, The Emporium, The American Legion and The Palette in offering a wide selection of delicious treats. Further down Bank Street, near Scales and Tales, along with the Worcester County Emergency Services Special Operations Trailer and the Maryland State Police Rescue Boat, craft vendors compliment Snow Hill’s shops. The Pie Eating Contest and the Children’s Tractor Pull are held; there is a Dunking Booth. At the river, Pontoon Boat Cruises are available. The Wheels That Heal Car Club will host a car show along the Pocomoke River. At 3:00 the festival ends as the combines leave Green Street. At 3:30 pm the Lawn Mower Tractor Pull will be held at Preston Motors Snow Hill Auto Body.
