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!
Portable air conditioners and spot coolers are often rented for cooling special events. AirPac is proud to support the largest festival on the East Coast and our air conditioners will be ready for cooling, if needed.
I'm not a native of Winchester but must admit the Apple Blossom fever is highly contageous and the only cure is participation in as many events as possible. The festival evolves each year and it seems there is always something new to experience. Last year, I attended added the Thursday Night Disco Dance Party to my list of events and this year, the Bloomin' Wine Fest was a first for me.
If you are anywhere near the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, this is the event to attend. The Apple Blossom Festival was just recognized as the of "Event of the Year" by the Virginia Convention and Visitors Bureau. Don't miss your chance to experience Americana at its best!
