The rain didn’t stop the 41st annual Fall Apple Festival at Washington Presbyterian Church pavilion and park Oct. 20. The festival started back in 1977 and was open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for visitors to get their hands on some delicious apple butter, apple cider and more.

One thing that makes this festival so special is that all the food is homemade by members of the church and the surrounding community, which means there were no outside vendors. All of the proceeds go toward missions. All the money raised this year was donated to the Morgan-Scott Project, Wesley House, Wallace Mobile Medical and Local Presbyterian Aid. That made all the more reason for the community to come out and enjoy the pulled pork, ribs, fried apple pies and much more. There was live music all day for visitors to enjoy while they shopped for handmade crafts, placed bids at the silent auction or enjoyed the many activities.
