119th Bear River Cherry Carnival, July 21

Cherry Carnival is an old tradition in Bear River that draws 100’s of visitors to the village. You will find a parade, community dinners, canoe races. But the most popular events of the day are the greased pole event and the over-the-top fireworks at dusk.
