Cherry Festival bumper gallery part 1 | Photos

The weather may have been gloomy but there was still plenty to see and do over the weekend for the 68th National Cherry Festival last weekend.

Young Witness photographer Amanda Langman was out and about during the three days to capture the moments that made the 2017 National Cherry Festival.

While the wet weather forced the cancellation of the street parade and rodeo, the (cherry) jam-packed program of the Festival ensured there was still plenty for people to see and do over the three-days of festivities.

Poppa's Fudge and Jam Factory owner Vicki Powderly said she had a “record” weekend of trade.

“The population of Young swells over the festival weekend and for us, it’s a great opportunity to not only boost the bottom line, it’s a chance for us to generate interest in our business with people from around the country – and the world – who go home and tell their family and friends about us,” she said.
