Applefest 2018 in Huron Township is set for the first weekend in October.
The festival, held Oct. 6 and 7 this year right in downtown New Boston, is the most popular event held annually in the township.
This year’s Applefest hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday of the festival, and 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. on Sunday.
Those seeking the Applefest parade this year will likely be disappointed.
For the second year in a row, the parade will be cancelled due to the Waltz Road bridge construction.
This year the bridge will likely be closed to foot traffic, unlike last year. This is because crews have started the process of building a new bridge over the Huron River.
Parking for the festival will be available in areas near downtown on the north side of the bridge.
The following detour to Applefest is suggested:
Southbound: Huron River Drive to Sibley Road, proceed eastbound on Sibley
Road to South I-275 to South Huron Road heading west, then take South Huron
Road to Waltz Road.
Northbound: Take Waltz Road to South Huron Road, proceed east to I-275 North,
then take I-275 North to Sibley Road, and follow Sibley Road to Huron River Drive.
