It was an actual fall day Saturday in downtown Greenville . . . crisp and chilly for the 24th annual Apple Day.
A nice crowd attended the event to participate in the many activities.
The apple dessert contest had nine entries with Miss Bond County Fair Kayley Woker, Junior Miss Brianna Ulmer, Chamber of Commerce Director April Crew-Kelly and her son, Aiden, serving as judges.
Apple Day Director Vicki Ellsworth and her daughter, Jessica Johnson, coordinated the dessert contest.
Pam Lindsey took third place in the contest. Betty Bays came in second. Ashley Heckman was the winner.
Heckman won the contest for the second straight year. Last year she won with a bacon apple pie. This year’s creation was bacon apple pie cinnamon rolls.
Music during the day was provided by the Brother Jefferson Band and Straight Lace.
Girls from the Fusion Dance Center presented a program.
The Greenville Business and Professional Association sponsors Apple Day.
