Apple Fest kicks off with a run; music, lunch to follow

SHOREHAM — The 10th annual Apple Fest will be held on Sunday, Sept. 16, at the Shoreham town green and gazebo. The day kicks off with a 5 and 10K run at 10:30. Activities and live music with Snake Mountain Bluegrass begin at noon. Lunch, made and served by the Friends of the Library, will include pulled pork sandwiches with sides of cole slaw, baked beans or mac’n cheese.
Apple desserts will be sold along with cider and snow cones. In addition there will be the annual apple pie contest, a photo contest, a farmer’s market, tennis and pickle ball activities on the town courts, a bounce house and children’s activities. Sip on a hard cider in the spirits garden.
Special to this year’s Apple Fest is the addition of Orchard Run. Previously known as the Apple Blossom Derby, this fun run/walk will begin at the elementary school (130 School Road). Walkers and runners will wind their way through back roads and apple orchards on a loop course back to the village. Categories for both the 5k and 10k races include ages 16 and under, $15, and adults, $25. Registration on race day will cost an additional $5. Orchard Run participants will be entered into raffle drawings and receive a discount on lunch at the Apple Fest food tent. Race t-shirts are available on a first come first serve basis. To register online go to friendsoftheplatt.com and follow the links.
Apple Fest and Orchard Run are fundraisers for the Friends of the Platt Memorial Library.
