The 85th Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival is coming to Winchester, VA, April 27 - May 6.  If you've never joined in the fun of the Apple Blossom festival, you've really got to add it to your calendar.  It's quite a party.

The festival is full of fun events, celebrities and parades.  Mario Lopez will be honoring us as the Grand Marshall of the festival this year.  Along with Mario Lopez, you can also meet the new Queen Shenandoah, Jasmine "Jazz" Dorsett, daughter of Tony Dorsett. 

Doug Flute will also be joining us for the Sports Breakfast on Saturday morning.  Lauren Green, Fox News religion reporter will be sharing at the Prayer breakfast.  Throughout the weekend there will be numerous luncheons, breakfasts and dinners filled with celebrities.

Don't hold your breath as you read this paragraph.  The list of events goes on and on, but here is a sampling of some of the events.  The United Bank Bloomin Wine Fest April 27-28, parties, a carnival, dances, concerts, a prayer breakfast, a sports breakfast, a Firefighters Parade, a Grand Feature parade (one of the largest in the country), a circus, a 10K race, a blue grass festival and finally, the Weekend in the Park.  Whew!  Breathe.

There is so much going on during the weekend, you'll have to come to believe it.  The area explodes with visitors from all over the country and the world.  It truly is a celebration of all the Shenandoah Valley has to offer.  Join us this year.

Hi Mike, lets see...I just need to take I-5 south to I-10...head east several thousand miles and I should be there in about a week! It should still be in full swing! This sounds like a really fun way to spend a few days and a great community event.

Come on over, Cindy W.  We'll leave the light on for you.  

Cindy J., it is in the top 5 parades in the US.  At one time it was the second largest.  I too marched in it while in a drum and bugle corp as a teenager.  Lots of fun, but really hot.  8=)

It's always a blast, Anna.  There are lots of celebrities, sports stars and other well known people.  We've had presidents and foreign leaders as well.  You just never know who will show up.

It does cover all the age bases, Will.  It really lasts for about two weeks, but the main event in the weekend of May 4-6.  The following weekend there is a big antique car festival that officially puts the festival to bed.

Thanks, Elyse.  It is always a big time in the valley.

Jill, we've had a lot of great celebrities.  In my lifetime, Bob Hope, Lucille Ball, George Hamilton, Hank Aaron, Bruce Jenner and a lot more that I've forgotten.  It is a pretty big deal in VA.

Thank you, Lisa.  It's a blast.
