The Troy Farmerís Market hosted the annual Troy Apple Festival Friday, featuring an apple pie contest with Karyn Larsen winning first place and Carol Lisle second. Community members also brought their apples from home to be pressed into cider for free, and took in live music.

In addition to the many regular vendors and a few special vendors for the festival, staff from Troy Public Schools were present selling bubble wands that students from the After School Program helped to make as part of ongoing fundraising to support the program. The Kootenai Kiwanis were also at the festival continuing to raise money to purchase supplies for Lincoln County students.

The festival also had information from area organizations and agencies and a raffle of useful items such as a bear-safe trash can.
