The VALLEY R ev u e
pring in the Shenandoah Valley is a breath of fresh air, both figuratively and literally. The warm breezes carry with them the sweet perfume of flowers crowded in boxwood gardens in the colonial towns. The lush green of the rolling countryside provides the perfect backdrop for orchards resplendent with the delicate pink and white of apple blossoms. We invite you and your family to share in our celebration of springtime by attending the 87th Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival® in Winchester, Virginia from April 25th – May 4th. During the Festival, Winchester residents open their doors to tens of thousands of new guests and old friends who gather in this All-America Community for the traditional celebration of a promising apple crop. From the pomp and pageantry of the Queen’s Coronation to the mechanized wonder of the Firefighters’ Parade; from the glitter and glow of our tremendous Fireworks Show to the serene beauty of the floats in our Grand Feature Parade, the Festival has something for the entire family. Carnival; circus; midway; dinners; dances; displays; shows: make plans for your family to be part of the fun at the Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival®, our 87th Anniversary! For additional information call 540-6623863 or go to www.TheBloom.com for a complete schedule of events.
