Blossom Time is one of the most wonderful weekends of the year in Chagrin Falls. Every year on Memorial Day weekend, the Chagrin Valley Jaycees organize a carnival with a midway, carnival games, food, and rides in Chagrin River Park, but that’s just part of the festivities.
There will be a 5.25-mile road race — The Blossom Time Run — that is one of the biggest races in the region every year.
There are hot air balloon launches and the inimitable Balloon Glow on Thursday night is one of the year’s most incredible light shows.
The Taste of Chagrin brings food trucks to the triangle in the center of town.
The Blossom Time Music Festival brings some of the most talented musicians to the region.
And before the weekend’s done, there is the Blossom Time Parade from the high school to the center of town. This event is traditionally the climax of the Blossom Time Festival. It has become one of the finest and most colorful parades in the greater Cleveland area over the past several years. This celebration was held annually in Chagrin Falls prior to World War II and was revived bythe Chagrin Valley Jaycees over 60 years ago with great success. Bands, floats, fire engines, marching units, and antique cars from all over the state of Ohio have been among the featured attractions in past years. Previous years’ parades have charmed an estimated 50,000-100,000 spectators.
Every single year, Blossom Time creates lasting memories for friends and families in the Chagrin Valley.
