It's that crazy time of year again when we must close our doors for a few days due to the huge festival known as Apple Blossom.
"The Bloom is an annual event organized by the Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival organization and held in the City of Winchester and Frederick County. Attracting crowds in excess of 250,000 people, the festival includes over 30 events such as the Old Town Wine & Fine Arts Festival, Apple Blossom Carnival, dances, parades, band competitions, a circus, and much more." courtesy of
26,587 Is the current population of Winchester, VA. Add 200,000 people and it gets crazy downtown. The big Grand Feature parade route happens right in front of our store so it makes it impossible to access our store or even park near it during this weekend every year.
I love the fact this attracts so many people to this area. We are in the heart of apple country and all the fields in the county are in full bloom of apple trees. So if you've never been, come out, enjoy and have a great time!
