Southold Town police warned festival goers Wednesday that traffic will be slow on County Road 48 on Saturday and Sunday.

Drivers are being encouraged to park off site at the former Martha Clara Vineyard, now the RGNY Vineyard, and then take a shuttle to the fairground.

The festival runs all weekend and features rides, games, and all things strawberry.
