Additional Information: 

Most likely manufactured in the 1960s, this particular button is a souvenir from the Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival, a celebration that is held annually in Winchester, Virginia. The first Apple Blossom Festival was held on May 3rd, 1924, and it celebrated the coronation of Elizabeth Steck, a Winchester resident who had the pleasure of assuming the title of 'Queen Shenandoah I'. Since then, eighty two queens have reigned over the festival. The extravaganza continues to be a source of civic and local pride as residents celebrated the festival's 89th anniversary in 2013.
