Blossom Fest opens

First of three weekends celebrating spring splendor

Towers of flowers are out there.

Blossoms are open or on their way to fullness all around the Hood River valley, home to the 2014 Hood River Chamber of Commerce Blossom Festival. It starts this weekend and runs April 18-21 and April 26-27.

Gorge Artists Open Studio Tour, April 11-13, and Hard-Pressed Cider Fest, April 12, are two highlights of this weekend’s events. For details on the tour, see Happenings, page A2, go to, or get maps free at Columbia Center for the Arts downtown. For an update on the cider fest, turn to page A3.

That’s just for starters: Panorama will tell you all about the weekend’s smorgasbord of events.

Panorama is the Hood River News’ colorful four-part special section published every April at this time, in sections titled Community, Reflections, Recreation and Blossoms.
