The Florida Strawberry Festival is warning customers about potential ticket scams.

Festival representatives say secondhand ticket-dealers are selling concert tickets at very high prices. They say many of those tickets are valid, but some may not be, and if you show up to the gates with fake tickets, the festival won’t be able to help you.

"We have a very loyal fan base here. We love our customers and really try to take good care of them. So it's sad to us that our customers we care so much about can be taken advantage of that way," festival spokeswoman Lauren McNair said.

McNair encourages people to purchase tickets at the ticket office or through the Florida Strawberry Festival's official website. She says concert tickets should be between about $20-$50.
