Being a Canon City native, I was so excited to participate in the 72nd Annual Music and Blossom Festival. The Blossom Festival is Fremont County’s celebration of spring, and great music. The pageant that I direct, the Blossom Pageant, is in existence solely to produce a Queen and Court to reign over the Blossom Weekend festivities. It was an honor to ride in the parade alongside my 2010 Blossom Pageant Royalty. The weather is often hit or miss during the festival weekend, and while it wasn’t exactly warm out, thank goodness it didn’t rain or snow. With the way spring in Colorado has been this year, we were VERY fortunate for that!
