Chamber Corner September 2017

Apples Arts & Antiques Ready to Take Center Stage September 21-23

After months of meetings and planning, Lexington's premiere fall festival is ready to launch. We've compressed the main event into a single, fun-filled day. There is something for everyone and it's definitely is a great way to kick off fall.
 
The Chamber's "Award Winning" Apple Auction kicks off on the festival at The LEX on September 21st.  This year's annual fundraiser will be used to upgrade the Christmas wreath lights that decorate our downtown streetlights during the holidays.
 
There's still time to build your Apple Auction Bidding Team! It's always exciting to see how these teams create friendly competition with all-in-fun bidding wars. You can also participate individually and your winning bid goes for a good cause. Please call the Chamber at 660-259-3082 and get bidding!

Saturday's events include live concerts by Blackjack Creek and "Elvis", plus an art show, street food & vendors, and a downtown full of antiques with both indoor and outdoor booths. Apples from local orchards will be for sale all day.

New events to the festival feature a fundraiser BBQ contest hosted by the Lexington Minutemen Takedown Club, kids projects and our first-ever apple pie eating contest.

Apples Arts & Antiques showcases Lexington and promotes economic activity for the entire area. Make plans to get out and celebrate Fall on Sept. 21st, 22nd and 23rd.
