  • Roy Webster Cross-Channel Swim

    09/03/2017

    At dawn on Labor Day each year, a large group of hearty souls jumps in the mighty Columbia River and swims the 1.1-mile stretch across to Hood River. The Roy Webster Cross-Channel Swim – Columbia River’s biggest and oldest official swim event, attracting hundreds of participants from around the world – originated in 1942 when local orchardist Roy Webster challenged himself to swim across the river. On the day of the swim, participants board the famous Sternwheeler paddleboat on the south shore of the Columbia, at the Hood River Port, and are ferried across the river to the Washington shore. When signaled, swimmers jump off the Sternwheeler into the “refreshing” Columbia and head back for Hood River. To help them find their way, a special swim lane lined with volunteers in sailboats, kayaks and paddleboards are there to guide, encourage, and protect swimmers as they cross the channel. This popular event fills up quickly, so be sure to register early!

    Roy Webster has passed on, but his family still owns the local orchard – now TheFruitCompany.com – and they carry on Roy’s legacy by participating in the event each year.To learn more about Roy Webster and the history of this event.

    Celebrate Hood River’s harvest season at the 35th annual Hood River Valley Harvest Fest on October 13-15, 2017, presented by Pacific Power and produced by the Hood River County Chamber of Commerce. This old-fashioned fall festival brings together more than 125 vendors offering local produce and food products, plus arts and crafts, wine, cider and beer tastings. Held along the scenic Hood River waterfront, this is the Columbia River Gorge’s biggest celebration of the region’s incredible fall bounty.

Thanks to the tent’s new central location, the music – which ranges from bluegrass to classic rock – will add a fun, live soundtrack to the festivities. There is also beer, hard cider and wine on tap at the tent, and proceeds will benefit The Arc of the Mid-Columbia.

    Festival-goers can load up on boxes of Hood River favorites, including fresh pears, apples, pumpkins, berries and flowers, and a wide variety of local foods, from pies and jams to smoked salmon and chocolate-covered cherries. Hood River Valley Harvest Fest is also a great place to get a jump-start on holiday shopping, thanks to numerous local artisans.

    Youngsters will love the kids’ activity area, complete with bouncy houses, face painting and other activities, including a petting zoo from the local 4-H club. They can also watch world-record giant pumpkin carver Scott Cully craft detailed designs into a 600-pound pumpkin. All festival-goers ages 15 and up are invited to take part in the popular pie eating contests on Saturday and Sunday at 2pm

    Starting in early April, the cherry, apple and pear trees in the Hood River valley welcome spring’s return by releasing vibrant pink and white flowers. They start in the lower elevations and, like a domino effect, move up the valley creating a patchwork of color.

    The area celebrates spring with the annual Hood River Valley Blossom Timewhich takes place throughout April. Visit Hood River in April and enjoy family-friendly farm events, craft shows, culinary treats, wine and cider tasting, and the Hood River County Hard- Pressed Cider Fest.

    One of the best ways to enjoy Blossom Time is to drive the Hood River County Fruit Loop, a gorgeous 35-mile drive that follows the county’s Scenic Tour Route and passes the valley’s plethora of orchards, wineries and farms.

    Stop along the way to pick up baked goods, preserves, yarn, fresh produce, wine, cider and more. Check back in March to download the Blossom Time Event Guide — you’ll see there’s something for everyone.
