Farm Trails at the Apple Blossom Parade

Posted in

For the first time in at least 15 years, Farm Trails had a float at the Apple Blossom Parade in Sebastopol on April, 29, 2023. The weather was beautiful, the crowd was joyful, and the float was awesome thanks to our creative team!

We’re already looking forward to next year’s parade, and hope to see you there!
