NAPPANEE, Ind. (WNDU) - Fall is on the horizon, which means it’s time for the Nappanee Apple Festival!

The festival kicked off in downtown Thursday night and it runs through the weekend.

There’s plenty of fun for the whole family, with more than a hundred craft vendors, rides, food vendors, and lots of other entertainment. And of course, the 7-foot baked apple pie is a festival favorite!

“The pie is a huge draw for us,” says Donna Persing, director of the Nappanee Apple Festival. “We’ve had national recognition for our pie, and that really draws people. The pan itself weighs a hundred pounds, the pie crust weighs a hundred pounds, and the filling weighs 450 (pounds).”

The “world’s largest apple pie” will get taken out of the oven on Friday. You can purchase a slice for $4!

Admission to the Nappanee Apple Festival is free.
