Just short of 86,000 attended the 2023 edition of the Apple n' Pork Festival.
Clinton Police Chief Ben Lowers points out while it was short of the last two Apple n' Pork Festivals - which were each record-setting - it is right on average for the Festival pre-COVID.
A trend the DeWitt County Museum has experienced over the last few years has been the increase in young people interested and touring the CH Moore Mansion during the Festival and Director Joey Long tells Regional Radio that trend continued this year.
For Long, the Museum now turns its attention to the 'Mourning Moore' exhibit coming next month.
For Chief Lowers, the Festival brings a great crowd out that causes very few, if any, problems He credits this to the fact the Festival is very traditional and centered around food.
