From the perfect weather, to the dedication of it volunteers and the participation of enthusiastic crowds, the 82nd annual Annapolis Valley Apple Blossom Festival “has been blessed,” said Festival President Gary Long.

As he waited in the parade line-up with other town criers from around the Valley and province, Long, who served double duty on parade day as town crier for Berwick and Canning, said “everything was coming together” for a wonderful weekend.

“It’s an ideal day, you couldn’t ask for better weather and from reports from the volunteers things are looking fantastic.”

Long credited festival board members and legions of volunteers for their hard work in pulling off the annual festival. He even said Mother Nature cooperated, providing blossoms at just the right time in orchards throughout the Valley for visitors to enoy.

    good morning, i am a little annoyed that the dear little attendents got no recognition at all. At the school in Hantsport they had to sit on the bench with their families all dressed in gowns. Why couldn't their have been a table for them with chaperons sitting with them. They were never introduced nor acknowledge at the tea, school, or cornation. What a shame these little girls were so excited to be wearing long gowns, hair done, etc., and never supported for their efforts. As you probably know it took alot of time, effort and finances from parents and grandparents to get these little girls outfitted for this exciting time. Someday these girls will be contenders for Queen for the occasion, but will they bother, no recognition why would they!!!!I would hope in the fuure someone will think of these little girls doing a wonderful job as attendents.
