Life is sweeter when you've got a mouthful of strawberries. Dive into the Vaile Strawberry Festival on Saturday, at Vaile Mansion in Independence (1500 North Liberty). Stuff yourself with strawberry treats, or other eats, as you wander among vintage cars and craft booths and listen to music. The festival runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free. A tour of the museum grounds costs $6.

You'll fall in amore with Festa Italiana, Friday through Sunday in Zona Rosa. The celebration of all things Italian has an Italian meatball-eating contest at 1:45 p.m. Saturday. Chef Jasper J. Mirabile Jr. broadcasts his show, Live With Jasper, at 11 a.m. Saturday, and chef Chris Canzoneri of Garozzo's gives up secret recipes at 11:30 a.m. Sunday. The festival begins at 5 p.m. Friday, at 11 a.m. Saturday and at 10 a.m. Sunday.

Get your bibs ready. The Crawfish & Shrimp Festival returns to the Back Yard at the Beaumont (4050 Pennsylvania). The shellfish extravaganza is Friday and Saturday. Lil' Malcolm & the House Rockers and Blue Orleans play live both days. The doors open at 5 p.m. Friday and at 2 p.m. Saturday. Tickets cost $5 and are available at the door.

KosherFest is Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Ohev Sholom (5311 West 75th Street) in Prairie Village. Snack on falafel, knishes, kugel and rugelach.

What have you got on tap for the weekend?
