The Apple n' Pork Festival is here and as thousands converge on the community this weekend, local authorities are sending out their yearly reminders of street closures, rules on the CH Moore Homestead grounds, and much more.
Police Chief Ben Lowers reminds of the street closures that start just off Clinton square and go all the way down Center Street to Woodlawn Street.
With thousands of visitors converging on Clinton this weekend, Chief Lowers says the biggest issue they encounter is the traffic. He asks those in the community and those coming to the community to simply be patient and take advantage of the legal parking opportunities all over the community.
A new wrinkle to the closure of Center Street in Clinton over the last few festivals has been the legalization of golf carts and Chief Lowers reminds those are not allowed on Center Street.
Animals have not ever been allowed on the Museum lawn during the Apple n' Pork Festival and Chief Lowers says in recent years, they have been more aggressive in asking people to not have pets on the grounds as it is a request of the Homestead.
The Apple n' Pork Festival is this Saturday and Sunday in Clinton.
We'll have continuing coverage leading up, during, and well after the festival concludes on Sunday on Regional Radio.
