The Patterson Apricot Fiesta, scheduled for June 3 through 5 2016, has sent out its annual membership drive letters in today’s issue of the Patterson Irrigator.
The 46th celebration recognizes the city of Patterson and its apricot industry. The categories of membership are $10 per individual or senior citizen, $25 for a family and $46 to become a Platinum Fireworks member.
The weekend activities include fireworks, food booths, a parade, craft vendors, commercial vendors, a firefighters’ challenge, a baking contest, and children’s games and entertainment. Little Mr. Apricot, Little Miss Apricot and Miss Patterson will be crowned Friday night on the downtown stage.
Donors who send in their membership dues receive a Fiesta decal and a 2016 Apricot Fiesta schedule of events that will be mailed in the spring. Platinum Fireworks members also receive a special Apricot Fiesta gift.
