Community celebration for everyone
Welcome to the Alexandra Blossom Festival 2012. I always enjoy this time of year as we come out of winter and we start looking forward to the long warm days of summer. For me the Blossom Festival marks this transition, so I always look forward to its arrival. But of course Blossom Festival is more than a celebration of the arrival of spring, it is a community celebration that involves everyone. Obviously the parade and the activities in the park are the highlights of the festival but there are many other events incorporated into this celebration. There truly is something for everyone to enjoy and remember. If you are participating in some way I hope you enjoy the challenge that you have set yourself. If you are just sitting back and watching, or coming from out of town to help us celebrate, I hope you enjoy the occasion and share the pride we have in our fantastic community.
