The Blossom Festival originated in 1900 as a celebration of the end of a two-year drought and the resulting beauty of the blossoming orchards. Dr. Edwin Sidney Williams, a retired minister, came up with the idea of the event. The event was so successful it was held each year for the next 40 years—growing larger and larger and reaching 20,000 attendees one year.

The Saratoga Historical Foundation will produce The Blossom Festival on March 23 from 10am to 4pm at the Saratoga Civic Center and Heritage Orchard. The day-long event has something for everyone and is free. Program details at www.saratogahistory.com
