The forecast for Friday says rain, do you know if the strawberry fest will still be on (especially the fireworks) or if there is a rain day rescheduling? I'd hate to drive an hour to come to the festival with the kids, then get poured on and miss the fireworks. Thanks

Rain or shine the festival goes on. Many strawberry fest weekend have been wet ones and the park gets pretty mucky, so if it does rain, boots are a good idea. If it rains fireworks night ( pouring/ lightning) they do them on Saturday instead.

Yep, fest will go on. Many rides will be closed and the grounds will be mucky, no matter how fast they try to get straw down, but it will still go on.

Fireworks will not go if it is raining. They will postpone them. Only once or twice have they had to cancel them all together. Sometimes it goes a little late, others it has to be done Sunday.
