Annual Apple Butter Festival
The second Sunday of October is always the date for the Applebutter Festival in Grand Rapids, Ohio. This wonderful day is sponsered by The Grand Rapids Historical Society and has grown larger each year. Thousands of people converge in this little town of 1,000 to celebrate Applebutter and the historical charm of this canal town.
Each year The Mill House with it's bakery business, "Joyful Confections" sells their famous soft scones and cookies all benefiting charities. This years charity is "GIFTS" a local ministry helping single mom's and other families in need set up housekeeping. We are blessed to be able to serve the community while having fun at the same time. If you are somewhere in Ohio this Sunday, consider stopping by Grand Rapids for a taste of applebutter and history!
