Four Flags Area Apple Festival Canceled

The Four Flags Area Apple Festival in Niles has been canceled for the year. Organizers of the event released a statement Monday, saying the 48th annual festival has been moved to September 30 through October 3 of next year. The board adds it is working on a plan to “provide a few events on the festival grounds which we will be able to host safely under state guidelines.” The board says the decision to cancel this year was extremely difficult, and “one that was made for us due to state restrictions.” Any vendors that would like to work with the apple festival for alternative plans this year are asked to send a message to the festival’s Facebook page.
