HAY CREEK APPLE FESTIVAL CELEBRATES TRADITIONAL FALL APPLE HARVEST
Hay Creek Valley Historical Association hosted the annual Hay Creek Apple Festival at the 18th- and 19th-century historic site, Joanna Furnace Ironworks near Morgantown on Oct. 13 and 14. The traditional fall apple harvest is firmly rooted within our local rural heritage and culture. The Hay Creek Historical Association volunteers strive to create a unique kind of event where visitors savor homemade apple fare. Family-engaging activities throughout this two-day festival included scarecrow building, pumpkin painting, face painting, early American games, plus hay and pony rides and the popular Apple Barrel Express.
