SAGINAW, Mich. (Michigan News Source) – The Strawberry Festival is set to return to the Saginaw area after a pandemic-driven hiatus.

The once 50-year tradition raises money for the elderly. For the past three years, the festival was a no-go as organizers followed health guidelines to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
