The Brushy Mountain Ruritan Club, which organizes the annual Brushy Mountain Apple Festival, this year purchased 45 new banners for the downtown area to promote the event.

Town of North Wilkesboro maintenance personnel are in the process of hanging the full color banners from utility poles as part of preparations for the 35th festival, which is Saturday, Oct. 6.

Club spokesman Paul Barelski said the 45 banners are enough for the streets at each intersection in the downtown area and elsewhere.

Barelski said 25 of the two-foot-by-four-foot banners feature one of five different first place winners in the club’s annual Brushy Mountain Apple Festival Snap-Shot Contest, which features photos taken at the festival.

He said 20 of the banners feature the familiar festival logo.

Barelski said the club spent a little over $1,000 on the banners. He said they are replacements for about 20 banners the club purchased about 10 years ago.

“We’re grateful to the town for helping us get them up,” he said.
