Cherry Picker's Trot

When: Thu., July 17, 5 p.m. 2014

To beat the current record holders, you’d have to spit a pit farther than 32 feet, 9 inches (women) or 43 feet, 2 inches mark (men). There’s still time to practice, since the summertime orchard tradition — the Cherry Pickers Trot & Pit Spit — is still a week out. A community hamburger and hot dog dinner is smartly held before competitors wear out their cheeks and lungs spitting pits across the field, but make sure to save some energy for the 4-mile “trot” through the rolling orchard hills. The Green Bluff tradition also offers lots of sweet, cherry-themed desserts to indulge in, live music and a kids Tot Trot race.
