With less than 20 days until the kick-off to the 92nd Apple Blossom Festival, the official souvenir store is now open.
Tickets to the Prayer Brunch and the VIP Stag Luncheon are already sold out and other events are expected to sell out very soon. Festival president, Barry Carper, said sales will continue to pick up when they release the names of the celebrities who will be attending this year’s festival.
There are over 40 events throughout festival week.
“On Friday, people were here as early as 3:30 in the morning getting ready for us to open because they were anxious to make sure they got the tickets they wanted to get. We had a line that was probably 100 feet long or something like that, it was quite long,” said Carper.
Barry Carper says there are also several free events that are accessible to the entire community.
