Cherry Fest Deadlines Near

Some deadlines for the Northwest Cherry Festival are getting closer.  One has been extended, as Lisa Farquharson of The Dalles Area Chamber of Commerce says the deadline to submit entries for the Cherry Idol contest has been pushed back to this Friday.  Submissions may be delivered to The Dalles Chamber or uploaded to the Facebook event page.  In addition, the window decorating contest deadline to submit an entry and complete decorating is next Monday.  Farquharson says they would prefer to receive the entry beforehand so they can be ready to take pictures of your location.  Those applications are available at
