Hilton Apple Fest goes on despite rain, mud
Hilton, N.Y. -- Hilton's weekend in the sun turned into a weekend in the mud.
But the weather didnt stop people from biting into an apple sausage or fishing for apples at the 33rd annual Hilton Apple Festival Saturday and Sunday.
Rain turned the grass field at the Hilton Village Community Center into a flat, muddy carpet.
Organizers said the food, games, crafts and live entertainment make the volunteer-run event a fall favorite for all, no matter the weather.
Were proud of it, our little village, said Rick Bjornholm, one of the Apple Fests chairmen. All the food groups are not-for-profit community service groups helping to fund their own organizations, and we just have a wonderful time."
