Clara Irwin's Strawberry Party will be held on Friday, July 1 from 5:30 to 8:00 pm. As in past years, we will feature frozen strawberry daiquiris, real strawberry short cake, hot dogs and brats, kids' games, story telling, music and other events.
Strawberry parties were a popular excuse for friends and neighbors to gather in frontier-era Springfield. The Iles House revival of this tradition continues to be one of our most popular annual events. It's a great way to kick off a patriotic Independence Day weekend with the whole family.
