This summer I’d like to take a few weekend posts to give you a little glimpse of what life is like in Dayton. Last week marked the biggest event of the year for Rhea County residents—the annual Tennessee Strawberry Festival:

There are plenty of ways to kill yourself along the parade route:

Is your hometown famous for any festivals?
