The History of the Apple Blossom Festival Geraldine Clarke Princess Port Williams Early colonists from Europe introduced the sweet scent of apple blossoms to the Annapolis Valley as they brought seeds, grains, fruits and vegetables to the new land. In peak years, nearly 3 million barrels of apples were harvested, valuable crops indeed!
The aroma of the blossoms in May and June, along with the natural beauty of the bloom, made the advent of spring even more of an occasion. Local boards of trade and community councils had talked of a spring carnival at blossom time but not until did talk turn into action.
Other committee members included Mayor G. Bligh, all of Kentville. Little has changed from the successful format of the inaugural event.
There was a contest involving selection of a blossom queen from among princesses representing several apple-growing communities. The queen was chosen by a panel of judges who based their decision on character, poise and personality of the young ladies.
Her coronation took place at the Dominion Experimental Station in Kentville, and on hand to cover the event was the Associated Screen News of Montreal, making newsreels to be shown in motion picture theatres throughout Canada and the United States.
Two years later, the Festival was incorporated by the provincial legislature and is to this day the only Festival that holds this status in the province. By the time World War II began, the Festival had become a three-day event and by this time, too, it had become internationally renowned.
During the war years, it was quite natural that the Festival would assume a new role, that of fundraising for war-related activities. Princess Cornwallis A large press corps was present for these occasions, and a suite was set aside in the Cornwallis Inn as a working area for the newsmen.
InJames Fitzpatrick, whose newsreels were syndicated as Voice of the Globe, and sold around the world, was on hand with a crew of cameramen, scriptwriters and make-up artists for the filming of the coronation.
For this occasion, the coronation took place in a Port Williams orchard. Instituted by the late C. Fairn, of Wolfville, the tour included a short ceremony at each stop. The local princess, as well as the queen, would be featured, and there would be a band on hand to play during the stop.
Miss Wade was a member of a well-known Kentville family. Donat was a brother of British film star Robert Donat, and the father of Peter Donat, a movie and television actor.
Donat, possessed of a fine baritone voice, was also a member of a male quartet, which entertained at many of the early Festivals.See the upcoming ex dividend date and dividend history for Apple Inc.
