The 2018 50th Anniversary Apple Blossom Festival 

This year the Westford Kiwanis will be holding its 50th Apple blossom Festival.  This festival will start on Wednesday May 9th and will end on Sunday May 13th.  Our annual Apple Blossom Parade will be held on Saturday May 12th.  All carnival activities will be held at the Abbot Middle School.

As always, our main attraction will be an old fashioned carnival with many rides and attractions along its thrilling midway.  Fiesta Shows will again bring their rides and amusements for our enjoyment.

Saturday night is our big night for fireworks.  This year we have plans for a fireworks display that will be the largest ever seen in Westford.  If you have enjoyed the fireworks displays that American Thunder have provided us in the past then you will not want to miss this one.

 

Do not forget the Apple Blossom Parade on Saturday.  This event will include over 50 groups from the Westford area.  It has been said that half of the town participates in the parade and the other half watches it.  This will be no different this year.

Remember that there is no charge for parking and no charge for admission to the 2018 Apple Blossom Festival.
