Opening ceremony held for 31st annual Fresno County Blossom Trail


The 31st annual Blossom Trail is on hold. Organizers kicked off the springtime attraction today with an opening ceremony in Selma. But they say with more rain in the forecast visitors will have to be patient for a few more weeks before the blossom season begins.  

“We expect a really, really great year. So yeah, by the end of February the 28th or so… You should see a lot of blooms,” said  Kristi Johnson with the Fresno County Blossom Trail.

The trail is a self-guided tour through eastern Fresno County. You can enjoy the pink and white blossom on stone fruit and almond trees.

“We have people that come to visit from around the world. So, the fact that they’re coming from around the world to see this, and we have it in our backyard,” Johnson added.

Grab a map and check out anywhere from 60 to 80 miles of blossoms. It makes for a picture perfect setting. 

The Blossom Trail goes until mid-March. They host several events including a 10k run, a bike ride and wine-tasting. For more information click here
