Unicoi County Apple Festival
Here are a couple of shots from the 30th annual Apple Festival in Erwin, TN. As you can tell from the sea of faces above, it's a popular event -- the two day event is expected to draw in excess of 100,000 people to this town of approximately 18,000. There's lots of arts and crafts, food, shopping, bluegrass and gospel music, and games and rides for the kids. The festival is typically held on the first Friday and Saturday in October, with hours both days from 8am to 8pm. To the right is a photo of fiddler Joel Shimberg.
