PASADENA, Texas -- One of the sweetest festivals in the state kicked off Friday in Pasadena. We re talking about the Strawberry Festival, home to the world s largest strawberry shortcake.

The Pasadena Strawberry Festival is the place to be this weekend. It s the 49th year for the annual event, and it's bigger, better and tastier than ever.

There is a whole lot more than strawberries out here, too. From a petting zoo to a 10,000 square foot indoor kids zone, there is plenty to experience this weekend.
