This festival is so cherry…

Local News

Get ready for cherry pie, sausage subs and carnival rides!  The 72nd Annual North East Firemen’s Cherry Festival is officially underway in downtown North East!

The festival is a family friendly event.  They have rides, small games of chance and a variety of food vendors.  “All the money we raise through the donation, through all the stuff on the festival grounds, it all benefits the North East fire department,” says Dave Meehl, North East Fire Chief.  It helps them with their training, the up-keep on their equipment, and more.

The Cherry Queen crowning will be on Thursday, and the annual parade will take place on Saturday.
