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.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
