2014 Grande Parade Forms

The long awaited event is here! It’s the 42nd Annual Four Flags Area Apple Festival! Get ready for some fun in a city that is known for its friendly residents and hospitality. You won’t find any big city attitudes here. The town of Niles knows how to have fun and put on a whopper of a festival.

If you ask past festival attendees what their favorite part of festival is, they’ll be hard pressed to come up with just one thing. It might be the Grande Parade which struts down the streets of tree-lined Niles on Saturday, ending near the apple festival site. Or a favorite might be the extensive arts and crafts show and sale which takes place on Saturday and Sunday. Everyone’s favorite part of festival is the food! The array of concessions is countless or you can go to the Apple Products tent for a variety of apple related treats.

Participants young and old will enjoy the many contests that the Four Flags Area Apple Festival hosts. They include a scarecrow contest, apple peeling, apple seed popping, apple pie eating, log sawing, horseshoes, apple pie, pastries and cakes contest, beard and mustache contest and a biggest apple contest. Whether you participate or just watch, it’s sure to bring a smile to your face.

Don’t forget the carnival part of the festival! Special wrist bands will be available on each night. Thursday and Sunday are your best deals at $20 per wristband for either day. Friday and Saturday are $25 which is still a great deal.

Sunday events include the Custom Car show and the Lip Sync Contest. Both are real crown pleasers!

Festival royalty will be crowned prior to the festival. They include a senior king and queen, prince and princess, Miss Apple Festival and her court, and Jr. Miss Apple Festival and her court. Look for them leading the parade and throughout the weekend.

Free entertainment for the 2014 Four Flags Area Apple Festival includes open stage Saturday and Sunday mornings during the pancake breakfasts and puppet shows throughout the festival. Cadillac West performs country music Friday night. Hometown favorite Irv Cass will perform as Elvis and Tom Jones Saturday. Mr. Cass has also promised to bring other great impersonators for the show. You won’t want to miss it! Spectacular Fireworks will be set off immediately following the Saturday night show.

The festival would not be possible without the sponsorship from our many sponsors and the endless hours donated by the board of directors, associate board members, junior board members, honorary board members and volunteers.
