Apple Fest to be held Friday and Saturday
- Published: October 7, 2019
The annual Apple Festival will return this year on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 11 and 12, in front of First Presbyterian Church.
The festival will begin with the annual Apple Cutting Bee, in which community volunteers come together to cut and prepare apples for the festival. Volunteers will meet at 9 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 11, to cut eight bushels of apples from Peifer Orchards, bake apple crisp and set up tables and chairs. A light lunch will be provided for volunteers when the work is done.
This year, the Apple Festival, which typically is only held during the fall Street Fair, will feature a Village Night on Friday evening, 6–8 p.m., outside the church. As with the annual Strawberry Festival, villagers are invited to come out and listen to a performance from the Community Band; apple crisp, ice cream and fresh apple cider will be sold.
The festival will continue as in years past on Saturday, Oct. 12, 10 a.m.–3 p.m. (or until supplies run out), at First Presbyterian Church, during Street Fair.
Those who would like to volunteer to help may sign up at the church during open hours or call 767-7751 Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–1 p.m.
