Woodland’s Chokecherry Festival celebrates five years
September 20, 2013
The annual Woodland Chokecherry Festival will takes place on Saturday, Sept. 21, at the Church Farm on Bench Creek Rd., just past the Woodland Church.
The festival celebrates the rich heritage of the community, with the name derived from the Chokecherry bushes that abundantly grow on the benches and hillsides.
The event will start with a 5K run for adults at 9 a.m. Same-day registration begins at 8 a.m. and the fee is $20.
A free kids’ race will start at 10 a.m. and check-in begins at the end of the adult race.
The remaining activities, including back-of-a-horse trail ride, petting zoo, historic wagon ride and food, will also begin at 10 a.m.
A dinner show featuring local actors, singers and musicians depicting life in the early days will start at 4:30 p.m.

The annual Chokecherry Festival began when a group of Woodland residents decided to present a community celebration five years ago.
