The Marysville Strawberry Festival Board of Directors would like to thank you for all the support and participation you gave us for the 88th Strawberry Festival.
We would also like to give our sincerest apology to you for the misunderstanding on carnival pricing for Thursday night. While we worked very hard to confirm pricing, and times for the carnival, a misunderstanding took place, and we made a mistake. We did work with the carnival director and tried to make up for the mistake by making Sunday a family day with the pricing we had advertised for Thursday. We hope you were able to attend the carnival and use the family pricing on Sunday.
Maryfest is an independent nonprofit organization ran by all volunteers who dedicate their time and energy to the festival. Nobody is a paid employee and the festival is not a city-run function. Strawberry Festival would like to thank all our financial and in-kind service sponsor partners and a special thank you to the city for the permits, street closures, parks and recreation, police and fire departments help and participation in putting on the festival.
The Strawberry Festival volunteers will continue throughout the summer and into the fall to travel to other festivals promoting and inviting others to come and visit Marysville all year long. Strawberry Festival travels over 5,000 miles to other festival locations as far north to the New Westminister, Canada, BC Hyack Festival, south to the Portland, Ore., Rose Festival, east to the Spokane Lilac Festival and west to the Sequim Irrigation Festival.
We invite you to join us at any time while we travel and at our meetings held the third Tuesday of July and August at our office at 1412 First St.
If you have any thoughts or suggestions, we would love to hear them. For more information please check our website www.maryfest.org.
Again, we, thank you for helping make the 88th Strawberry Festival happen.
Jodi Hiatt, Maryfest president
