The Hilton community will celebrate the apple harvest and kickoff the autumn season from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Entertainment will be presented on the Gazebo and Main stages, in addition to some family favorites at the Kids Corner stage. The Festival will also feature Corey’s Apple Pond, face painting, a Farm Market and over 200 craft vendors offering genuine handmade items. One of the area’s largest Auto Show’s will be held on Saturday only. A variety of foods and apple flavored treats will be sold by Rochester area non-profit organizations that fundraise at the festival. A Five-Foot Apple Crisp is baked on site each morning. Pieces of the hot apple crisp are available for purchase at 12 noon each day, and always sell-out quickly. Free parking and shuttle bus service is available, in addition to Handicap parking access, at Hilton High School, 400 East Avenue in Hilton.
