cherry-blossoms2Cherry blossom season must come late in Barberton, Ohio, since their annual Cherry Blossom Festival doesn’t take place until May 17 through 19, 2013.

All the fun stuff — we’re talking games, food, vendors — takes place at Lake Anna Park, 535 West Park Avenue, Barberton, Ohio (map).

There is a cherry pie eating contest under the Big Tent at 4 p.m. May 18, 2013, with signups at the Visitors Center that day between 1 and 3:35 p.m. Contestants compete in three categories: 6-10 years old, 11-15 years old and 16 & up. Participants will be expected to eat a 1/4, 1/2 or whole Gardner cherry pie — without their hands.

The annual festival is sponsored by the Barberton Area Jaycees.
