King Apple

By Linda Tancs

Apples have been grown in North Carolina since European colonists settled there. The western part of the state is where you’ll find the action, particularly in Hendersonville. One of the country’s top apple-growing areas, it’s no wonder that the annual North Carolina Apple Festival is held there every Labor Day weekend. The event features a street fair on Main Street (including live musical entertainment, crafts, apple products, special exhibits and food) and culminates on Labor Day with the King Apple Parade, presenting floats, bands, fire trucks, cartoon characters, antique cars and more. The festival is just a 30-minute drive from Asheville.
