Do It Today: Strawberry Festival, Nude Nite, Disco Pigs at Silver Meteor and poet Gianna Russo at USF

It's time once again to have a berry good time in Plant City. The Strawberry Festival begins with its Ride-a-Thon Day — a $19 wristband gets you on most rides (3-11 p.m. only).

Entertainers from today and yesteryear abound. At 3:30 p.m. you can roll out the barrel with Bobby Vinton, and gracing the stage at 7:30 p.m. is the velvet crooner,  fried chicken entrepreneur, ex-bf of Lucille and Gambler himself, Kenny Rogers .

.38 Special plays tomorrow, and Trace Adkins and the Judds play on Sun.
