National Cherry Festival Announces Opening Line Up

Posted: Updated:

Exciting news for the National Cherry Festival -- as they announce their opening weekend lineup.

They've announced that this year, bands Styx, Montgomery Gentry, and Foreigner will kick off the week of Cherry Festival.

The executive director of the festival says bands of that caliber have never opened the week, so they're hoping to see it draw in big crowds.

It comes at a perfect time - with Cherry Festival starting a couple of days earlier than in years past.
