July 15, 2014 - The 69th Annual North East Firemen's Cherry Festival will begin. Vendors, yummy food and rides are all part of the fun. The big fundraiser benefits North East's fire department and helps to keep them up and running the entire year.

Many look forward to the delicious cherry pies each year, and several groups make sure there are plenty to go around. About 20 people from St. Paul’s Ladies Aid are making 800 pies this year.

Saturday at 4 p.m. will be the big firemen's parade.
