This Saturday is the annual Apple Day celebration in Penrose, but this year's festival has a bit of a sour note. None of the orchards in Penrose have apples this year. Third Street Apples says on it's website, it doesn't have a single apple because of drought conditions. But the festival is going on as planned.
The Penrose Chamber of Commerce says it received 23 boxes of apples from Colon Orchards in Canon City. More to come.
