Apple Festival returns to Niles


Northern Michiana is getting ready for a big event.

The Four Flags Area Apple Festival returns this weekend.  It takes place in Niles and this is the 41st year of the celebration.

Carnival rides, a parade and several contests highlight the event.  Organizers say its a great time for the whole family.

Apple peeling and an apple popping contest are quite popular.  The latter is a favorite among young children. 

The tradition is so strong that the staff is filled with volunteers.  "We have volunteers that run it, nobody is paid for in the event we all just love the festival, it's been able to survive all this time and we hope it goes another 41 years," says Pat Teeter an organizer.

Live music will be part of the event as will a car show.  The festival is located near the airport.  It runs through Sunday and it all kicks off Thursday afternoon at 3.
