Daffodil Festival Draws Thousands

JUNCTION CITY, Ore. — Between 10,000 and 15,000 people headed to Junction City for the annual Daffodil Festival. The festival featured more than 40 different types of daffodil flowers.

The festival had more than just flowers to attract the crowds. Fair goers went on wagon rides, listened to stories in a teepee and checked out booths from local vendors. Families also took their kids on a horse-drawn carriage ride.

Volunteers from local 4H clubs worked booths selling hot chocolate and berry bars. In the past, these booths sold cinnamon rolls, so the change was disappointing to some event goers.

Event organizers said the weekend festival attracted large crowds to Junction City. “We’re always ready to celebrate the daffodils. The third weekend of March is pretty traditional, and I think 41 years ago they figured it out,” said event organizer Danuta Pfeiffer.

The festival takes place the third weekend of March each year.

    Sorry to see the cinnamon rolls go after all these year. Is’t that what started the event in the beginning?
