Johnny Appleseed Days
First held in 1888, the fair now known as Johnny Appleseed Days is the oldest harvest in the state! In 2013, we celebrate the 125th anniversary, or quasquicentennial of this treasured Paradise tradition, sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce since 1937. The 2013 two-day fall festival will celebrate Paradise’s apple heritage with homemade apple pie and ice cream. Paradise residents and members of the Paradise Ridge Chamber of Commerce will again bake one thousand apple pies, available whole and in slices.
Paradise t-shirts, badges and souvenirs will be available from The Paradise Ridge Chamber of Commerce booth. Local businesses will give demonstrations and display their wares, and Paradise will host artisans from all over the state and beyond selling a variety of handicrafts.
The ever-popular children’s area will feature face painting, games for the young and old alike and prizes. Johnny Appleseed will visit and tell stories. There will be continuous entertainment both days. So come and join us at Johnny Appleseed Days on Saturday, October 5th from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, October 6th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event takes place at Terry Ashe Park, 6626 Skyway, in Paradise.
The Chamber of Commerce’s Johnny Appleseed Days is an historical event that involves the entire community. The event is enjoyed by scores of attendees each year, many of whom make Johnny Appleseed Days an annual family occasion. Johnny Appleseed Days represents one of the ways that the Paradise Ridge Chamber of Commerce unites local businesses with local residents.
