60th Annual Hood River Valley Blossom Fest: April 12-27, 2014 Nothing says spring quite like fruit trees in bloom, and Hood River County celebrates the arrival of spring in style with their three-week annual Blossom Time. Hood River Valley, which spans the north slope of Mount Hood to the south shore of the Columbia River Gorge, is the largest pear-growing region in Oregon, producing 50% of the nation’s winter pear crop. It’s also home to an abundance of cherry and apples orchards.
