Apple Blossom time

The williamson chamber of commerce envisioned that Apple Blossom time would “become an annual affair and In the future expanded Into a major event. No community, It Is believed, has observed such an anniversary of agriculture.”

Little did they know at the time that the soon to be “Apple Blossom Festival” would become the longest continually running festival in the state.

In an excerpt from the Williamson sun and the Williamson Sentinel., May 04, 1961: Festivities started Saturday evening May 13, with the selection of Williamson’s Apple Blossom Queen, sponsored and under the direction of the williamson township youth committee. Friday May 19th, held the first of two crazy days sponsored by several williamson merchants.

This was a plan whereby lucky shoppers made purchases of certain articles In designated stores at rediculously low prices. There was also a band concert on Main street between that evening. Saturday, a broiler barbecue was also held on May 20 at the Williamson grange and served Its members. John Deminck’s orchestra took Its place on the band stand and a street dance was held on main street. May 27 offered a full day of entertainment and the annual parade at 2 pm.
