YOU don't have to visit New York to experience the big apple.
The annual Apple Day Festival will feature the reappearance of the Tallong landmark, the Big Apple.
Organiser John Lombard encouraged Highlanders to come along to the festival.
"It's always a very popular day out for the whole family," Mr Lombard said.
"There's always something to see and do."
There will be more than 50 street market stalls which will sell local apples and apple cider as well as craft items, food and refreshments.
Attractions will include fleece to garment wool spinning competition, an apple bake-off, a photography competition, a writing competition and demonstrations covering wood chopping and archery.
Children's entertainment will include a rock climbing wall, a pie eating competition, a slide and a performing arts competition Tallong's Got Talent.
There will also be an art competition for infants and pre-school children to commemorate the Granny Smith apple.
Musical entertainment will include a performance by Tallong group Mountain Dew and a ukulele band.
The event will pay tribute to the apple tradition of the Tallong district.
The Apple Day Festival will be held on Sunday, May 1 at Memorial Drive, Tallong. Entry to the festival is a gold coin donation.
