Apple Festival Queen/King Coronation
For 60 years, the Apple Festival Committee picks a high school student with ties to the orchards.
On Saturday, October 8, the community is invited to line the streets of Rittenhouse Avenue as the Pipes and Drums of Thunder Bay lead the queen/king to Memorial Park for the Coronation. (The Bayfield Lakeside Pavilion will be the rain location.)
Queen/King Procession: 6:45 p.m. October 8
Coronation: 7 p.m. at Bayfield Memorial Park.
