Apples on display kept no one away during Salmon Arm’s Apple Fest.

The apple-oriented event, hosted by Downtown Salmon Arm and Askew’s, returned for its fourth year on Saturday, Sept. 29. A nod to Salmon Arm’s agricultural heritage and reputation for producing exquisite apples, the festival was an opportunity for vendors, community groups and others to fill the Ross Street Plaza and the adjacent section of Hudson Ave. NE (closed for the festivities), and celebrate the popular tree fruit with food, music, stories, activities and more.
