APPLE DAY OCTOBER 6TH ON GREENVILLE SQUARE
It's another annual event coming up this weekend on the Greenville square. WGEL spoke with Vickie Ellsworth about the 16th Annual Apple Day, October 6th, on the Greenville Square, sponsored by the Greenville Business and Professional Association. She says there will be lots of activities for everyone including the petting zoo, farmers market at 7am, Flip Flop Tumbling at 10am and Mikayla Roach and DB Railroad at noon. New this year is the Trash and Treasure Flea Market on Main Street and the Apple Desert Contest. Ellsworth said that it always used to be an apple pie contest, but many people had told her that they just couldn't make a good apple pie…so this year it was expanded.
Also taking place in the morning is the Greenville Women's Club Awards at 10am and a Story Hour by the Greenville Public Library. Apple Day will last all day with entertainment and music through 4PM.
