The Washington State Apple Blossom Festival is three and a half weeks away, beginning June 3rd, and Administrator Darci Christoferson says they are planning on making it as normal as possible even though it doesn't feel like a normal year.

"Everything will be happening in Memorial Park that we always have happening. I just spoke with the arts and crats chairpeople and we walked through that. Everything is going to look a little different, but it will be a lot of the same for sure."

There are pandemic restrictions that will be in place such as mask requirements and changes made to the layout for physical distancing purposes.

Christoferson says with the county in Phase 3, that helps with keeping the festival close to normal, but there will be precautions.

"We'll do the exit and the entrances for sure and we're doing a QR scan code that might be something we do all the time. People can fill out the information that's on the code and then we're going to have email addresses and information."

There will be 15 food vendors, which is a smaller number than normal, but Christoferson she believes most everyone's favorites will be there.

There is currently no home for the carnival, so it's status is currently in doubt.
