Versailles Olde Tyme Apple Festival 2017
Visit the square in downtown Versailles this Saturday for a fun-filled day of family-friendly activities. Hungry? Start off with a bite to eat at Westminster Church’s pancake breakfast. The parade kicks off at 10 am. You won’t want to miss the pie auction on the main stage at noon. Yes, I said “pie auction” as in bidding on pies that were entered into the apple pie baking contest. For the right price, one of these lovelies can be yours!
In addition to the pancakes, parade, and pies, guests at the Versailles Old Tyme Apple Festival 2017 can visit the quilt show, listen to live music and see tractors, engines and classic cars on display. The kids zone stays open from 9 am to 5 pm. Don’t forget to visit vendor row to pick up something special for your home decor, a friend’s birthday or any “just because”. At the end of the night, head over to the fairgrounds for the Compact Figure 8 Race. That’ll be followed by the Powder Puff Scramble. Fun for everyone!

Come Pay Your Respects
The City of Versailles and the Versailles Olde Tyme Apple Festival are both honored to host the Vietnam Moving Wall. It’s half the size of the original memorial wall located in Washington DC. Currently, it’s making its way around the United States. For five days only, this tribute to the brave souls we lost during the Vietnam war settles in the City Park baseball field. From the opening ceremony at 1:30 pm on Thursday, October 5th, until noon on Sunday, October 8th, everyone is welcome to come pay their respects to these heroes. After that, it moves on to its next destination: Diamond Head, MS.
