Description

If you are a country music fan, you might be familiar with Paintsville, Kentucky, the hometown of renowned country singers, Loretta Lynn and Crystal Gayle. Otherwise, Kentucky Apple Festival might be a perfect chance for you to visit this tiny scenic city. Started in 1962 as a venue for Johnson County’s huge apple production, the festival nowadays draws more than 70,000 visitors for a weekend-long celebration of apples and all apple-related stuff. Once at the festival, you have to treat yourself to a Tiger Ear, or a Fried Apple Pie. After this mandatory intro, you can browse numerous other food booths located nearby. If you somehow get tired of the taste of apples, check out handmade crafts, the flea market, the Gospel music show or the antique car show, join the parade and a 5k Run, and dance to the songs of local country musicians. Other fun activities include the apple auction, cooking contest, mini apple parade, quilt block contest, baby contest, bike show, beauty pageants, and much more.
