There were tons of people in Erwin today for the Apple Festival. Lots of “country crafts” and you can basically eat your way from one end of town to the other. I recommend the fired apple pies. The festival continues on Saturday, Oct. 7. Nice fall chill in the air this morning, kind of like a chilled apple, but by mid-day, it was sunny, beautiful and mild. Suppoedly there are 300 booths (I certainly didn’t count them) and it attracts 90,000 people.
