Cherry Festival is home to treasures and treats

This year’s Cherry Festival at St. Mark’s will be more than sweet. 

Along with the usual fresh-baked cherry pies, barbecue, bake table, historic tours and Fife and Drum Corps music, the church will be giving early access to the annual Haute Emporium on Thursday, July 4. 

From 3 to 6 p.m., NOTLers and visitors alike can take a look at all the treasures that will be on display during Saturday’s festival earlier than everyone else. 

“We don’t do this to this extent every year and we’ve got some great items,” festival chair Andrea Douglas said. 

Countless treasures are among the racks, including a vintage Maple Leafs jersey signed by former player Doug Gilmour and a hockey stick signed by all the players during his time as assistant captain. 

For shoe enthusiasts, The Lake Report spotted a pair of Jimmy Choo heels priced at only $25. Cash and card purchases are available. 

If sweets are more your speed, stop by the festival itself on Saturday, July 6 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., where 650 cherry pies are waiting to be sold.
