By the end of March, apple blossoms are perfuming the air of Sonoma County. And on their heels is Sebastopol’s annual Apple Blossom Festival, complete with a parade, two stages of live music acts, and arts and crafts and food vendors. While live pop, blues, reggae, and jazz music may appeal to adults, a magic tent and visits with chicks and other farm animals will entertain the kids. The festival kicks off at 10 a.m. on April 13 with a parade down Main Street; the day’s activities go until 6 p.m. On April 14 activities run 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Admission on either day is $8–$10 or free for children younger than 10. Activities take place at both Ives Park and the Sebastopol Center for the Arts. For an extra fee, children can take part in Fun and Games Rentals activities, such as tea-cup rides, water-race games, a train station, and Jr. Jurassic Adventures, all held in the parking lot across from the Sebastopol Center for the Arts.
