WASHINGTON - Washington's biggest Summer festival will no longer be called "The Cherry Festival".

Instead - they are going back to its original name.

The city will change the name back to "Good Neighbor Days".

The festival was called "Good Neighbor Days" up until 1999, when they renamed it "The Cherry Festival".

However, Washington is not known for cherry trees.

The city believes that, because of the November tornado, "Good Neighbor Days" seemed more fitting - to highlight the "neighborly" bond in the community.

This year's "Good Neighbor Days" will run from May 28th to June 1st.
