Bellflower Chamber of Commerce and the City of Bellflower jointly presented the 3rd Annual Apple Harvest Festival on September 29th. The family-oriented community event once again delivered a spectacular milieu with lots of fun, excitement, foods galore, exhibits of rare crafts, goods, and live performance from the Dave Storm & the Thunder Creek Band, entertainment from Southern California’s favorite DJ, Shawn Parr of Go Country 105 FM, and a showcase of organizations and groups that make Bellflower a wonderful community to live in, work, do business with, and visit.
||BACK-TO-BACK BEST APPLE PIE — Bellflower resident Phyllis Ridenour, once again winner of Apple Pie Baking Contest, receives her award from special guest, Southern California’s favorite DJ, Shawn Parr of Go Country 105 FM during the recent Bellflower Apple Harvest Festival.
Highlighting the festival was the most-awaited, by young and old, Apple Pie Eating Contest which brought excitement and laughter to both contestants and spectators. The Apple Pie Baking contest was, of course, the main draw, with different versions of sweet-smelling and mouth-watering apple pies on display. Pie-baking enthusiast and civic-minded, unbeatable Phyllis Ridenour stole the show, again, by winning first place for the second time!
