Get ready for cherries.

The St. Mark’s Anglican Church Cherry Festival is coming back in full swing this Saturday.

“We love to do it and interact with people and watch the happiness that it brings to so many,” said church warden Andrea Douglas.

“The cherry pies are front and centre,” Douglas said.

There will be more than 500 pies available. But they go fast, she said.

Beyond the much sought-after cherry pies, the festival will include live music, a barbecue, vendors selling jewellery, books, baked goods and clothing, she said.

There will also be activities for children and the Niagara-on-the-Lake Museum’s Tiny Museum will be making a guest appearance.

Two heritage interpreters will also be on-site to give tours of the church.

The festival takes place on July 9 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at St. Mark’s on Byron Street, NOTL.
