PARADISE, Calif. - The oldest harvest festival in Northern California is back. Judy Clemens from the Paradise Ridge Chamber of Commerce joined Action News Now Linda Watkins-Bennett to discuss the upcoming event.
Jonny Appleseed Days is returning to the ridge on Saturday, Oct. 5 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and the following day, Oct. 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Terry Ashe Park, 6626 Skyway, Paradise.
First held in 1888, Johnny Appleseed Days is the oldest harvest in the state.
While Paradise awaits Noble Orchards' to fully recover, the traditional apple pies will be baked in the Paradise by Pie Pavilion sponsor Save Mart, Clemens said. Volunteers will serve 1,000 free slices of apple pie to attendees as a thank you for shelter and assistance during this year.
Residents on the Ridge and members of the Paradise Ridge Chamber of Commerce prepared around 500 do-it-yourself apple pie kits. The kits include the apples, special spice mix, and a recipe book, all for $15.
