Apple Blossom Festival. Just hearing the words make me smile! Apple Blossom, or The Bloom, is a 10-day festival in Winchester - Frederick County Virginia when the entire area is covered in signature pink and green. The Bloom runs from April 23 - May 2, 2010 and there are over 30 events for the whole family to enjoy -- celebrities, carnival, circus, fireworks, golf tournament, 10K race, luncheons, parades and parties -- we even have a Miss Apple Blossom and Queen Shenandoah LXXXIII (yup, that's 83!), Rachel McDonnell will receive her crown at the coronation ceremony from her father, Virginia Governor, Tim McDonnell!
