They are healthy, delicious and now the popular fruit is going to be celebrated in Salmon Arm.
Downtown Salmon Arm has planned the first AppleFest, which is taking place Saturday, Sept. 26 at the Ross Street Plaza from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Local orchard growers will be present with samples and sales of their apples. Stop by the Shuswap Farm Market booth or visit with a local nutritionist.
Vendors will be selling local dried apples, apple butter and apple baked goodies, as well as cider and apple-smoked cheddar.
Bring in your unnamed apple variety to be identified by experts.
There’s family fun all day. The Kids Zone will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Activities, games, face-painting and a children’s entertainer will put smiles on faces all day long
