The Paonia Cherry Days baking contest is July 4. Bring your "cherry" item to the Cherry Days booth in Paonia Town Park from noon to 12:30 for judging. Items will be judged on use of cherries, presentation and flavor. Please use a disposable container. Winners will be announced at 1 p.m. from the main gazebo stage. Cash will be awarded for first-fourth places.
