The Cherry Royal ParadeThe National Cherry Festival in Traverse City was initially called the "Blessings of the Blossoms" in 1925 and included a prayer ceremony for a good cherry harvest. The festival was held every year in May to attract visitors to Northern Michigan during the blooming of the blossoms on the cherry trees.
