It was the third Saturday in September and it finally feels like the real Apple Festival, for one thing the weather was a lot cooler this year in comparison to last year’s Apple Festival. It was 56 degrees Fahrenheit (about 13.33 degrees Celsius), my sister and I weren’t dressed for the cooler weather and had to buy sweatshirts there.
We got there early and by 10 am the place was packed. It was a grey day and we were expecting some rain in the afternoon. This is truly a local community event, all food vendors and craft vendors must be from the Lincoln county area.
According to the Lincoln Times, this is the 39th year for the seasonal event, and there’s no doubt that Lincoln County’s much-anticipated annual staple has increasingly ripened over the years from a meager crowd of only 8,000 attendants in 1978.
Crape Myrtle trees are planted on the street and begin to bloom in mid-Summer.
Lee bought their French fries as soon as we got there.
Then had her hair colored, as you can see blue is her favorite color. She also had blue feather piece clipped on to her hair, that’s what she was admiring in this photo.
My dad and sister waited patiently since the line was long.
It’s obvious that we were there for the food, next was the funnel cake.
The Can Art is really neat, I like to learn making something like this.
Lee bought a black hummingbird, and I bought 2 angels.
It’s amazing what people can do with recycle material, and in this case Can Art proves that you can turn anything into art.
This is real neat also and homegrown from their own backyard.
There were school marching bands playing.
We bought our apples from Knob’s Creek.
It was $10 per bag, and we got 3 bags for $24. I didn’t dare bargain for 4 bags since it was very heavy. We parked our car at the nearby school and had to walk back with the apples.
It started to drizzle but it didn’t last very long.
I didn’t get to try the southern food, the lines were too long. We bought domino pizza instead and it was only $10 per tray.
