Activities for September 21-22, 2013
Hood River Valley is famous throughout the nation and the world for its wonderful pears. Autumn is the perfect
time to take a leisurely drive on the back roads of the Hood River
Valley, the largest pear growing region in the U.S. During the peak of
pear harvest, fruit stands and attractions all along the valley's scenic Fruit Loop celebrate with special activities.
Sample more than 18 varieties of pears, enjoy pear desserts,
artisan foods, a glass of pear wine, live music, a corn maze, and more.
