ALBION – Julian Pawlak, 3, of Medina emerges from a giant shark’s mouth. The shark was a large inflatable with a slide at the Albion Strawberry Festival. It was part of a Family Fun Center on Main Street, just north of the First Presbyterian Church.

The 33rdannual Strawberry Festival opened on Friday and continues today.

Emma Ray, 8, of Albion throws a baseball at a target on a dunk tank. She was successful in knocking Chrisjen Winters, 10, into the water.

The dunk tank is being used as a fundraiser for the St. Mary’s youth baseball team. Chrisjen is one of the St. Mary’s players. Several kids on the team took a turn in the tank.
