Cherry Festival Kicks Off for 2019
The 74th annual Cherry Festival has begun in North East.
All tents with the festival's logo will donate all proceeds to the North East Fire Department.
The festival is the largest fundraiser of the year for the volunteer fire department. It helps cover costs for equipment, insurance and training.
Highlights of the event include the crowning of the Cherry Festival Queen on Thursday at 6p.m. and the parade on Saturday at 2p.m.
