Cherryville Days soar

The 54th annual Cherryville Days may have been Wingin’ It, but festivities soared on the fun-scale all weekend

To “wing it” is a theatrical expression referring to impromptu performances given by actors who hurriedly learn their lines while waiting in the wings. That’s how this year’s committee pulled together Cherryville Days.

“Cherryville Days is an important annual fundraiser for the Cherryville Community Club, which manages and maintains Cherryville’s community facilities, Cherryville Community Hall and Hanson Park,” said Debbee Werner, committee member, adding that all is undertaken by community volunteers.

The weekend festivities included the Cherryville Days 2017 Parade, Show &Shine, Pet Show, Talent Show, a variety of food and market vendors, live music, and beer garden; and fun activities including Kiki the Eco Elf and other entertainment and games.

Also featured this year was a Wing Off Barbecue Cooking Competition, following the highly-hilarious and famous Outhouse Races. Then the community gathered Saturday night for a dance featuring The Goods, followed by more fun Sunday.
