Circle K Orchard to host annual Apple Festival this weekend

Email

BELDENVILLE--Less than 50 people attended the first Circle K Orchard Apple Festival in 1989.

Twenty years later, orchard owner Wilson Mills estimated this year's festival, which will be held this Saturday and Sunday, should draw between 3,000-5,000 people.

"It seems like yesterday when we first started it," he explained. "One of the things I think that has caused the growth is the tradition of it. When we go to markets, people I don't even know ask when the festival is."
