Starting April 12th the annual Hood River Blossom Festival begins. The festival is not any singular event but is a series of events going on throughout the month celebrating springtime. Click here for details on all the events happening throughout the month of April. Things kickoff on the 12th beginning with the Passport Weekend to Gorge Wineries.
The big weekend, however, is April 20th with a handful of events taking place, including the can’t miss Apple Valley Country Store’s Blossom Festival Dessert Party. The baked goods at the Apple Valley Country Store are amazing. Here is a picture of a pear dumpling I had there this fall. It was delicious.
So if you are visiting Portland in April I suggest heading over to the gorge and checking out some of the events taking place this month.by
