Bear River Cherry Carnival History

 

In 1780 it was discovered that cherry trees would grow well in this area.

 

In 1893, George Brooks made the cherry trees the focus of a celebration.

 

This celebration was and still is a thank you to the hard-working men and women of the village.

 

The celebration soon would be known as the Bear River Cherry Carnival.
