The event began over a century ago when cherries was a major crop produced on the Ridge. However, over the years the cherries have diminished and this year, Grey says they are going to start a new tradition to bring back the once abundant crop.

Though there are still cherries on some private property around the area, Grey says the intent is to add a new tree each year.
The Cherry Festival begins with the parade in North San Juan at 10:00 AM on Saturday. Traffic is temporarily rerouted around town during the parade. Following the parade the rest of the activities take place at the Activities & Improvement Center also located in North San Juan.
