Fun and Games for kids of all ages await you at the 2014 North East
Firemen’s Cherry Festival. The festival, celebrating 69 years this
year, is slated to be bigger and better than ever. With our NEW
midway and return of classic fair fare, there is simply no way to go
The 2014 festival will feature a NEW midway provider,
Bates Brothers Amusements. Bates Brothers was formed in 1965 in
Wintersville, Ohio. With exciting, ultra-modern rides, a friendly
and professional staff, and exceptional value, we are certain you
will be impressed with our choice.
And what would the Cherry Festival be without the pies,
fries and delicious sausage sandwiches? The Ladies Auxiliary will
again be selling their delicious cherry pies and ox roast
sandwiches. Piping hot, fresh cut curly fries will be available at
the fry barn, and the original Cherry Festival Sausage Sandwich will
be served hot, on a freshly cut roll, at the Sausage Tent. In
addition, sweet-tooth-satisfying cotton candy will be available at
the Cotton Candy tent. With all these delicious choices, we are sure
you will find something for you at the North East Firemen’s Cherry
