TANGIPAHOA PARISH, La. (WVUE) - Events on the Northshore are returning strong and a new fall festival happening in Ponchatoula hopes to give fest-goers some of what they may have missed from canceled events in the spring.

The Ponchatoula Strawberry Festival board is hosting the first-ever Toula ‘Que & Fall Fest starting Friday at 3 p.m. and through Sunday evening. With the absence of the Strawberry Fest for two years due to COVID-19 shutdowns, the board is putting on a barbecue festival and competition. Just like with the Strawberry Fest in the spring, the festival will take place at Memorial Park and feature food from vendors all around South Louisiana, live entertainment, and amusement rides. Since it’s Halloween weekend there will be a costume contest and Trunk-or-Treat for kids.
