Apple Scrapple Friday and Saturday in Bridgeville
Bridgeville will host its 10th annual Apple-Scrapple Festival Friday and Saturday, Oct. 12 and 13.
The festival, designed to celebrate two of Bridgeville’s proudest commodities, will start at 4 p.m. Friday and end Saturday night at 10 p.m. In between, there will be singing, dancing, competitions and eating.
Following festival tradition, activities will focus on two of the small town’s main commodities: apples and scrapple. And not just eating them, although there will be untold numbers of scrapple sandwiches and apple dumplings consumed.
Competitions will also revolve around the two foods. New this year will be a mayor’s invitational scrapple toss, in which the muscle of leaders of area communities will be put to the test.
For schedule see pages 30 and 31.
Street Rod Association
The Southern Delaware Street Rod Association will be presenting a $7,000 check to the Delaware State Police for Camp Barnes on Saturday, Oct. 13, at 3 p.m., during the Apple-Scrapple Festival in Bridgeville.
