Cherry memories from Marilyn Ericksen

My cherry memories are older than Jim Goff’s memories of Dalles cherries. (Could that be possible?) As a little girl we had cherries. We had trees in the yard that were remarkable. They had two kinds of cherries on each tree. The small orchard that was on the other end of the block had different kinds of trees in the orchard.

Cherry Festival origins stretch back to 1940

The Northwest Cherry Festival story has several beginnings, including the 1979 launch of the modern festival. Some people trace its origins back to 1940, when Helen Spickerman of The Dalles was picked as Cherry Queen. She represented local growers with a full-fledged float in Portland’s Rose Festival Grand Floral Parade. But that auspicious beginning was not repeated the following year, and America’s entry into World War II after Pearl Harbor put the idea on hold.
