After two years of cancelled events, health protocols, and social distancing, the Creston Valley Blossom Festival returned for the 81st annual celebration.

Festivities took place over the long weekend from May 20 to 23, including a street fair and carnival.

The parade, a historical event that dates back to the very first festival, marched down Main Street on Saturday morning.
