The last Apple Blossom Festival was, thanks to COVID, in 2019.
This years Festival has been eagerly awaited. It started on the 28 Of April this year, with the Kids Parade on the 30th. This parade is for school kids, home rooms, school bands and drill groups and individual or community entries too.
Between the Kids Parade and The Grand Parade there are food courts, arts and crafts fair, a Musical, Music in the park daily and lots of other activities.
The attached video covers the Grand Parade. For the Grand Parade to get started on time (10AM) the volunteers and entries start arriving around 6AM We went to the starting place around 745... still not many people or entries. We had breakfast at the Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast. Just as we were leaving the band musicians started to arrive for breakfast too. We then took a walk through the staging area and viewed floats up close. While we were there three more floats arrived with another dozen or so yet to arrive. Then we moved to the parade route and took the same area we have been going the last 50+ years.
So here is video... enjoy it! https://youtu.be/eVHjxdxFGZw
