Strawberry Festival

<p>After the 1900 hurricane that destroyed Galveston and heavily damaged Pasadena, the fledgling Red Cross organization donated millions of strawberry plants to gulf coast farmers to help revive the damaged communities. Subsequently, a major strawberry farm grew up in the area and made Pasadena a major fruit supplier for many years. Pasadena strawberries were valued for their sweetness and their size. In the heyday, as many as 28 train cars a day would leave the city filled with berries. Today, the area's Strawberry Festival occurs in mid-May and includes a parade, a beauty pageant, contests and lots of strawberries!</p>
