The Wincheter Host Lions have been organizing and presenting the Shenandoah Apple Blossom Grand Feature pararde for 77 years (no parade was held during WWII). Dozens of Lions and other volunteers work tirelessly to make this signature event of the Festival a success. Would you like to be a part of this legacy? Contact the Parade Director for more information.


Sensory Trail

Winchester Host Lions is sponsoring a Sensory Trail to be built in Jim Barnett Park. This trail will be easily accessible to persons with impaired sight allowing them to walk a trail, stop at stations to learn about the flora and fauna surrounding them, and to enjoy a peaceful time in the Park. We hope to have the Trail complete before winter 2017. For more information or to donate to this endeavor please contact Caz Zuckerman.
