The blossoms were at their peak last Sunday on the riverbank in West Pittston as the 42nd Annual West Pittston Cherry Blossom Festival concluded under sunny skies. The festival opened on Saturday with a gala parade.

Lou Ciampi, Sr., a West Pittston resident and founder of Independent Graphics Inc., served as Grand Marshal.

Later in the day, 7-year-old Ashley Thomas was named Little Miss cherry Blossom.

Sunday’s activities began at noon with Bravo “the great” Magic Man followed by Sing Along with Billy Frye, then Ashley Lamoreaux, the David Blight dancers, Beth Connor with Perfect Harmony School of Music, and the popular local band Flaxy Morgan.
