Murphysboro Apple Festival announces changes to 2020 event


MURPHYSBORO, IL (WSIL) -- The 69th Annual Murphysboro Apple Festival will take place this year but new health and safety guidelines mean some major attractions are postponed until next year.

The postponed events include the Appletime Grand Parade, the Queen Pageant, the apple pie eating contest, and the Appletime prayer breakfast along with Drums at Appletime.

The festival will still include food vendors, apple pie and apple butter contests, 5K walk/run and much more.

This year's Apple Festival will take place -- September 18th and 19th.
