During yesterday's kick off of Apple Blossom, all sorts of police vehicles were at the park. Here we see a line of police motorcycles standing at attention.
The new Gateway Cinema will be opening soon in part of the old K-Mart building just off Highway 2 and Easy Street on the north end of Wenatchee. Here we see the sign that has been announcing the coming of the theater.

As part of the festivities that kicked off the 2011 Apple Blossom Festival, the helicopter from the Chelan Count Sheriff Department flew over those in attendance at the Food Fair on Thursday. The kid (and adults too) who were there loved it!
The SWAT Team vehicle for the Washington State Patrol was on display at Memorial Park today for the first day of the Apple Blossom Festival. Many other law enforcement vehicles were there too.
The Apple Blossom Festival is here and one of the favorite parts of it for some people is the Food Fair. Booths opened at 11AM today and there was a great selection of food available including corn dogs, curly fries, cotton candy, burgers, noodles, chicken skewers, baked potatoes, chocolate covered strawberries, and more.

This World War II era transport train was used to move troops for the allies during 'The War to End All Wars'. Currently, it sits near the east end if the Riverwalk Bridge just off the loop trail. There is a caboose nearby, as well as a fully functional small train which takes children fir rides occasionally.

The Horan Nature Area is located just off the loop trail, right alongside the Columbia River, and very near to everything in Wenatchee. This photo was taken last fall during a walk through this fun little outdoors area right in town.

Located just of the loop trail and near the Riverwalk Bridge, Wenatchee's Riverfront Railway is a miniature train that rides on its own miniature track. When the weather is nice, the train comes out of its hiding place and even gives rides to cildren from time to time. This is a very fun way to make a visit to the park or trail even more enjoyable.
