What started nearly seven decades ago as an apple blossom festival in Saluda has become rooted as the fall kickoff celebration of the region’s popular fruit.
By the numbers, the North Carolina Apple Festival is in year 69, and drew around quarter of a million people to its Hendersonville home this past weekend.
“The rumor is Johnny Appleseed planted the first apple tree here, but I wouldn’t put much stock in that,” said David Nicholson, executive director of the festival.
Our Hendersonville office went all out with their float in the parade. All the agents in this office really enjoy being a part of the community they serve.
