The Apple n' Pork Festival returns to Clinton in 2021 and local authorities are reminding festival-goers of the dos and don'ts of Apple n' Pork weekend.
Opinions vary on if it will be a big crowd or if COVID will keep the crowds limited. Clinton Police Chief Ben Lowers says no matter the crowd size, everyone needs to remain patient navigating traffic and the crowds and the road closures.
An annual reminder to attendees is to leave pets at home. Chief Lowers reminds that is a rule of the Homestead and Museum. Additionally, as golf carts become increasingly popular in Clinton, the Chief notes those are not to be driven on Center Street when it is closed this weekend.
Center Street in Clinton closes from Woodlawn to the railroad track on by the old Save A Lot store. Chief says to plan for congestion in Clinton, especially on the north side of the community, and encourages those that park on or near the highway and Business 51 to consider driving into town and parking in town and supporting area groups who are coordinating parking.
