  Ponchatoula is a hub for strawberry growers, and the Ponchatoula Strawberry Festival, April 10-12 (, is its annual extravaganza with small-town charm — there are sack races, egg tosses and strawberry eating contests and all sorts of sweets featuring strawberries. Events include a parade at 9:30 a.m. Saturday in the center of town and a run/walk Sunday at Ponchatoula Junior High School. The festival takes place at Memorial Park (301 N. 6th St., Ponchatoula) all three days, and the band lineup includes Chubby Carrier on Saturday and Christian Serpas and Ghost Town and Bag of Donuts Sunday. All-you-can ride passes are available for the amusement rides. Abby Earles, the 2014 Strawberry Queen, reigns until the pageant crowns a new queen June 6.
