Happy Columbus Day! Today, I would like to talk about my trip to Hickory’s Apple Festival, which is located in Washington County. I went to this event with some of my relatives on Saturday afternoon … and I went there in all kinds of weather. I still had fun at the event, nonetheless.
While I was at the Apple Festival, I snapped four photos of the clouds, which were in the skies above both Hickory and Mount Pleasant Township. The clouds here are grey, dark and white.
Just moments after I arrived at the Hickory Apple Festival, it started to rain … and I also heard some rumbles of thunder while I was there. I had to go under a green and white tent until the showers and the storms left Hickory. Luckily, the skies cleared up … and the sun was able to come out just minutes after I arrived at the festival.
I wasn’t able to see every exhibit while I was at the festival because the grass was too muddy, but I was able to see a few exhibits in some buildings and in some tents. I also went to the Mount Pleasant Community Center … and, on the top floor, there is a fascinating train exhibit. I snapped three photos of it while I was there. The train exhibit was fantastic, to say the least.
I also bumped into two of my friends while I was at the Apple Festival. First, I bumped into Michael Keehn, who went to South Fayette High School. We both went to that school at around the same time in the early 2000s. Ironically, Michael was at Nicky Papakie’s 50th birthday party in August of 2014 … and that birthday party was the subject of my first ever blog post. Michael and I became friends on Facebook in February of 2015. He’s one of the classiest friends I have ever known.
I also bumped into Ted Wolford, who works for the Mount Pleasant Fire Department, which is one of the festival’s sponsors. I first bumped into Ted on National Hill back in August of 2017. Ted is one of the classiest friends I have ever known.
Nonetheless, I had a fantastic time at Hickory’s Apple Festival. I went there in all kinds of weather conditions. Hopefully, I’ll be able to go there again in the future.
