Despite the warm and humid weather, the first day of the 48th annual Apple and Pork Festival had a good turnout.
Clinton Police chief Ben Lowers indicates the official approximate number of attendees was 49,770. Lowers said he noticed that the crowd died out a little earlier this year, possibly due to the unseasonable weather.
Lowers reminds those coming to the festival tomorrow to stay hydrated, take it easy, and try to stay cool.
DeWitt County Museum Director Joey Woolridge reports that the museum had an excellent turnout today and hopes the same continues for tomorrow.
Woolridge indicates that the museum will be open for self guided tours again tomorrow. Free entertainment also continues tomorrow with many acts, including local band Modern Cowboyz.
Tune in tomorrow for live coverage of the 48th annual Apple and Pork Festival from 11am to 4pm on the Big 1520 AM/92.3 FM WHOW, 95.9 FM WEZC, and online at dewittdailynews.com.
