So many of you have stopped to chat with Tom Brown of Clemmons, NC, at his booth at the festival. Tom is the man who is working to collect and preserve all types of heritage apples, and part of his work usually involves collecting the stories that go along with his adventures. You can read his latest newsletter here, and go back to a time when every home had an apple tree. Enjoy!

Did you know? In Mount Olive, North Carolina: The New Year's Eve Pickle is lowered down the Mt. Olive Pickle Company flagpole at 7 pm EST, midnight Greenwich Mean Time. Makes me think: Why doesn't Lincoln County have an apple drop celebration to bring in the new year. We could be the Little Apple instead of the Big Apple...Maybe we should look into this. What do you think?
Get an early start on your holiday spirit! The 2017 Lincolnton Christmas Parade takes place on Sunday, November 26th at 4pm!
By popular demand, the 2017 Parade route has been updated to include North Aspen Street. The parade will start on East Main at Flint Street, travel west to the Courthouse and turn right onto N. Aspen and end at Lincolnton High School in the student parking lot.
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE! After the parade, gather 'round the Court Square as we light the Christmas tree to signal the official beginning of a season of festivities in downtown Lincolnton. Holiday music and performances begin at 6 p.m.
