Cherry Blossom Festival bigger, better than ever

May 22, 2011

PAWTUCKET — Pink and yellow were the colors of the day as the third annual Cherry Blossom Festival got underway on Saturday along Roosevelt Avenue.
Pink — the color of cherry blossoms — has always been the symbolic hue for an event originally designed as a fundraiser to maintain the more than 100 rancho cherry trees that were planted along Roosevelt Avenue in 2009.
This year, the pink theme was expanded to include a companion fundraiser sponsored by Storage America to benefit the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation.
