Covington Apple Fest royalty named, festival Sept. 30 around the city square

Covington Apple Fest will be from 9 a.m.-5 p.m Sept. 30 around the Covington city square.

Chairperson Amy Thompson said, “Returning favorites are the Car, Truck & Motorcycle Show and the Little Miss Apple of Your Eye Contest. Performers that are “returning favorites” are Catlin Crozier and Booe & The Bobz.  “We are excited for some first-time performers such as Josh Dill, a 13 year old phenomenal pianist who plays everything from ragtime to Christian music and Coop & Company (they are local Covington group of guys who had their first performance at the Covington 4th of July Celebration) and we invited them to play at Apple Fest. 

“We have also added Spotlight Performing Arts which is a Kid’s Show as well as GG Magic and Balloons which will be creating balloon art on the Courthouse Lawn from 2-5 p.m.  

“This is the biggest year to date of vendors.  We have had to be very creative with making room for all of them. We have over 125 vendors.”
