You don't have to be born into royalty to be a princess. . You can sign up for the Elyria Apple Festival Princess Pageant and earn your crown this month at the Elyria Apple Festival! The Elyria Apple Festival takes place Sept. 16-18, 2022. Festival Chair Stacey Francis and Princess Pageant Coordinator Jen Parker joined us in studio to tout the festival and encourage contestant sign-ups for the pageant. Parker is taking pageant registrations through Labor Day weekend at www.elyriaapplefestival.com. The Elyria Apple Festival will have more than 100 food vendors, crafts, musical entertainment, apple-themed activities, children's games, a fun run, a car show, an apple-themed baking competition and the Apple Festival Princess Pageant. As always, Elyria Schools will be represented with a booth at the Apple Festival selling the district's world-famous Pink Cookie, and hosting the Apple Art Contest for student artists.
