There are plenty of recreational opportunities in Montgomery Township. During the Montgomery Rodeo, Daube Farm is transformed into an up-close-and-personal rodeo arena, giving spectators a view of several cowboy events, including bucking broncos, bull riding, and barrel racing. An annual strawberry festival, hosted by a local Boy Scout troop, has been a community staple for four decades. It celebrates all things strawberry—from ice cream to shortcake.
