Salmon Arm is celebrating the second annual AppleFest, Oct. 1 at Ross Street Plaza from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“It’s a celebration of orchard history in Salmon Arm,” said community coordinator of Salmon Arm Downtown Association, Roger Parenteau.
Parenteau estimates there will be around 15-20 vendors.
There will also be live entertainment by Ryan Guilbeault.
This year, visitors can bring their tasty apples from home and watch them turn into juice with a mobile juice factory.
“It’s quite impressive, it’s a full on truck-trailer deal,” said Parenteau. The factory will take up half a block.
A minimum of 150 pounds is required and will be packaged in five litre bags in boxes. The cost is $6.75 per box.
The leftover mash from the apples will go to local farm animals.
Community organizations, information booths and non-profits will be on site, and there will be a creation apple-themed soup.
