We look forward to seeing you at the 50th Apple N Pork Festival. If you are attending the festival this weekend, be prepared for delays. If you are not attending the festival, I would advise to steer clear of the area. Areas where parking is permitted have been clearly labeled with signage.

PLEASE watch for pedestrians walking along the roadways, especially along Business 51. A majority of the vendors are in that area. A portion of Center Street and Woodlawn Street will be closed to vehicles for the weekend. Enjoy the nice and cool weather, but most importantly, have fun! #AppleNPork2018
