Apple Festival

The 37th Annual Apple Festival was held on October 10-11. We could not have asked for better weather or a better turnout. What a wonderful weekend filled with food, family, fun and entertainment! When we say that the festival and all of the great activities would not be possible without the help of generous sponsors and volunteers, we truly mean this.
