According to Sherry Burkitt organizer of the Brighton Applefest Car Show around 340 entrants showed up. About 35 more than last year.
“Every year it gets bigger. The weather really does bring a lot of people out.
I love it. Seeing this school yard really packed from one end to the other in four hours is great.”
“The Quinte section (vintage motorcycles) is new this year. We have had it open before for tractors … I am hoping they will be back next year. It is nice to get a good mixture.”
Speaking as one of the organizers of Applefest this year she said, “This year with it being 150 we were trying to make it a little bigger, make it a lot more enjoyable for people. Our parade for this year was bigger than normal. The Main Street is always packed from one end to the other. It is unreal the number of people that come down there. It is unreal the number of vendors that we can get.”
“I just hope to see everybody back next year. And see it grow year after year. It has been amazing.”
