TRENTON, SC –
A tradition that has been going on for over 50 years, the Ridge Peach Festival brings together peach lovers from all over the world to celebrate this sweet nectar fruit and enjoy all the peach goodness.

Peach cobbler, peach ice cream and more peaches.

For the 51st This year the Ridge Peach Festival took place in Trenton, South Carolina.

Some have been there from the beginning, like Robert Blodgett, who has been there for all 51 years.

“Since the ’70s,” says Blodgett.

And when asked what keeps bringing him back, Blodgett says, “The peach ice cream, the peach pie and all those peach trees.”

Others started their tradition just last year, like Ryleigh Gillian, who is visiting for only her second time.

Ryleigh says, “I'm going to watch the parade as the cars go by. It's going to be great fun.”

But everyone enjoys the music, the games and, of course, the peach-colored treats.

“I want to buy peaches, go to the festival, watch the parade, you know all that fun stuff,” said Henry Rich.

It's not just peaches that are available at the festival, with over 60 vendors joining in the fun, selling everything from clothing and handmade products to most people's favorite: food.

And all this is possible with the help of numerous volunteers of all ages.

“Probably seeing all the people smiling and having fun,” said volunteer Gavin Chandler

If you missed it this year, don't worry, it happens every year in the third week of June.
