The Locust Blossom Festival

Updated: Apr 1, 2020

Last Saturday (5/30/15) I had the opportunity to head down to Kendrick to enjoy the Locust Blossom Festival.  The festival marked the 55th anniversary of the event and was a lot of fun.  The events started in the morning with a 2 and 5K run.  Then at 10am there was a parade going down main Street, which lasted for almost an hour.  After the parade a fantastic lunch was served, with proceeds benefiting the J-K Lions club.

Since this was my first Locust Blossom Festival I didn’t really know what to expect.  However after watching the parade for a few minutes I quickly realized that you should expect a great, family friendly time at the Locust Blossom Festival, which is exactly what I experienced.  Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to put the festival on this year and I look forward to attending again next year.  Mark you calendars the last Saturday in May for the Locust Blossom Festival.

Here are some pictures of the parade that I took while enjoying the festival.
