The last weekend of February is the first weekend of the festival season in the Central Valley. The white blossoms on the almond trees mark the arrival of longer days and warmer weather ahead.
Credit the folks in Ripon to celebrate this beautiful blossom with a full-blown family-friendly festival! The Ripon Chamber of Commerce does an awesome job of supporting this terrific event.
Everything you could want in a festival will be on display this weekend - meet the Almond Blossom Queen, run in the early-morning fun-run, watch the Almond Blossom Parade, see the diaper derby and go to the carnival. There will be great food, local vendors and fun for the kids all weekend long.
The weather is going to be beautiful so come on down and join the fun. Make a point of stopping by our booth -we'll have a fun game that you can't lose and we'll be here all weekend!
