How do you top eight days of food, fun and family-friendly activities, and entertainment? With a cherry, of course. After all, this is the National Cherry Festival. Begun in 1925 as the “Blessing of the Blossoms,” the event was a way to celebrate the area's abundant cherry crop. It's one of the country's largest and most popular festivals, drawing over 500,000 people in its eight days.The Traverse City Cherry Festival is chock-full of fun and excitement. Thrill-seekers will flock to the midway for rides and attractions. Vendors will serve up favorite food items, including Gibby's Fries and smoked turkey legs, plus a variety of fare from local restaurants. Premier performers take center stage for live concerts. At the festival, the time is always “ripe” for a really great time.
