This year, the 75th Apple Blossom Parade would have been held on April 17. However, COVID-19 derailed plans for a spring event.  In place of the official parade, some friends in town got together and decided to do an unofficial Apple Blossom Parade on April 17. It was a small parade, but a fun one. The parade got people talking and enjoying what was happening. While an official parade celebration is postponed until further notice, there are plans for a possible official parade in September.

Complete with Apple Blossom princesses!
