The Pasadena Strawberry Festival in Photos

The 38th annual Pasadena Strawberry Festival drew an estimated 50,000 attendees this year, but it also drew our new photographer Adrienne Byard, whose photos from the event capture a slice of Houston so sweetly and unintentionally nostalgic that they could have been taken in 1978. From Byard's photos, you'd think heaven was Pasadena on a Sunday afternoon in May.

Take a trip through the festival for yourself in our slideshow, or just enjoy some of our favorite photos from the day below.
