Today marks 77 years of a tradition in Penrose as hundreds gathered to celebrate Apple Day!
All sorts of apple-flavored goodies were available from apple crisp to apple cider.
Orchard owners were on hand to sell apples by the pound.
Vendors and live music lined Broadway through Penrose.
The apple yield isn't as large this year due to the drought and extreme heat.
"A lot of the orchards, well like these apples here," said Charlie Newlon, holding a bag of Apple Valley Orchard apples. "On a normal year, these apples would be much bigger, and as many can see, they're not real big."
The apples still have the same great taste that they say you can only find in Penrose.
The drought didn't make them worry about Apple Day.
They say they knew it would still be as successful as ever!
