Now in the 86th year, the festival's staff says the theme is fitting and they "Love to Bloom."
"The first festival was in 1924 and this is 2013 so we're working on toward 100 years," says John Rosenberger, executive director of the Apple Blossom Festival. "It's just a huge part of the community here."
The 10 day festival kicks off April 26th and will continue in with the traditional celebrations the community has cherished for decades.
"We're doing everything that we always do," Rosenberger says. "Two parades, one on Friday, one on Saturday afternoon. The queen and all the coronation activities, the celebrities, the fireworks, diners, parties and dances" he explains. The staff will be announcing celebrity guests and event details over the next month.
The Apple Blossom store will open on April 1st, selling event tickets and souvenirs.
"Get ready. We're coming," Rosenberger says.
