Northwest Cherry Festival opportunity to share, connect
SALEM, Ore.-Senate Republican Leader Ted Ferrioli, of John Day, today invited members of the Legislature and all Oregonians to the 38th Annual Northwest Cherry Festival. The invitation comes on the heels of the passage of Senate Bill 146, which “designates the third Saturday in March of each year as Cherry Blossom Day.”
Ferrioli said:
 “The 38th Northwest Cherry Festival is one of Oregon’s great community celebrations. It features the crowning of King Bing, Queen Anne and Royal Anne and Andy, a grand parade, live music, cruise-in and activities for the whole family. This year the Northwest Cherry Festival will take place from April 21st to 23rd in the Dalles, under clear and sunny skies. Senate Bill 146 is a great opportunity to cross-publicize Salem’s beautiful ornamental cherries and the Northwest Cherry Festival.”

The Dalles Area Chamber of Commerce CEO Lisa Farquharson said:
“We are tremendously excited for the 38th Northwest Cherry Festival and the coming together of people from all over the Pacific Northwest for one of our greatest traditions that celebrates our deep agricultural heritage. There is truly something for the whole family including the largest parade in the Gorge, a classic car show, Cherry Idol, 10K race, Cherry of a Ride bicycle race, home-show, and so much more. We look forward to this three day celebration demonstrating hand craftsmanship, regional entertainment, family fun carnival rides, and that amazing small home-town feel.”
