"Summers w/Grandma were measured by how good the cherries were," G. Canada. The city of Beaumont's annual Cherry Festival takes place from 5-midnight on May 31 & June 1& all day Sat. & Sun. at Stewart park.
The festival includes a parade, carnival rides, outdoor concerts and mountains of fresh cherries, and features Ferris wheels, merry-go-rounds and a host of vendors offering food and prizes. Most events, including a few concerts, will take place on Saturday after a community pancake breakfast.
