Apple Festival 2017
You won't want to miss this year's Apple Festival scheduled for September 28 - October 1, 2017!
Start your fun with Youth Day on Saturday, September 23rd, sponsored by the Greater Niles Community Federal Credit Union. Kids will be on hand at 8am for the Trike & Bike Race and other activities. At noon they will all be at Eastside Park so that they can lineup for the Youth Parade. The Youth Parade starts at 1:00 from Eastside Park and ends at the Apple Festival Fairgrounds on 17th. Once the kids get to the fairgrounds they know that everything is free! Free Hot Dogs, Cotton Candy, Prizes, Games, Sno Cones and Rides for the kids. All games are sponsored by McDonald's Restaurant of Niles and the Niles Service League. Maybe Ronald McDonald will make it again this year too?
The carnival atmosphere begins in earnest on Thursday, September 28th when the Apple Festival Fairgrounds open. There will be Contests: Apple Pie Eating Contest, Scarecrow Contest, Lip Sync Contest, Log Cutting Contest, Beard & Mustache Contest and so much more. Apple Festival even provides an Arts and Crafts Festival, Live Entertainment, Crowning of the Apple Festival King & Queen, Fireworks, Carnival Rides and Carnival Foods and much more! Also, don't miss the Apple Festival Grand Parade down Main Street on Saturday, September 30th at 1:30. For complete information, visit the Apple Festival website.
