Shoreham’s Apple Fest is Sept. 22
SHOREHAM — For the 11th year running, Shoreham will host its annual Apple Fest celebration. This year’s event will be held on Sunday, Sept. 22, at the Shoreham town green and gazebo from noon-4 p.m.
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 Platt Memorial Library, will include pulled pork sandwiches with sides of coleslaw, baked beans or mac’n cheese. Apple desserts will be sold along with cider and snow cones. The festival will also include the annual apple pie contest, a farmer’s market, tennis and pickle ball activities on the town courts, a bounce house and children’s activities. Those 21 and above can sip on a hard cider in the spirits garden.
Runners and walkers are invited to participate in 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.
