LEONA VALLEY CHERRIES

Leona Valley is well known for its U Pic Cherry orchards.  For over 50 years, people have enjoyed picking their own sweet and sour cherries.  There are now about 10 orchards, most of which avoid the use of pesticides with some being certified organic.  Many of them have picnic areas and sell cherry products.  For more information, go to http://cherriesupic.com.

LVIA has sponsored an annual Cherry Parade and Festival on the first Saturday of June for over 40 years.  Our 2017 Grand Marshals were Steve and Stefanie Fredericks, active members of many Leona Valley organizations.  The Parade features lots of floats with local community queens, horses, and antique cars.  Don't miss the deep fried cherry burritos!  We also have a cherry pie eating contest, car show, live band and lots of craft vendors.

Our 2019 Grand Marshal was K J Miller who has made many contributions to our community.  He has helped over the years with repairs to the Community Building including bringing his tractor to repair the washed out driveway (more than once!).  He assists all our local organizations, including LVIA, WAVHS, and Sertoma.  He volunteers a lot of time to the Lancaster Elks Club.  He is well known for driving his beautiful, restored yellow Ford convertible in the Parade every year for the Grand Marshal.  This year his wife Sandy drove him!
