MURPHSYBORO, IL (KFVS) - The 63rd annual Apple Festival is just days away from kicking off in Murphysboro, Illinois.

Organizers say the week-long event is jam packed with free entertainment, rides and plenty of carnival food.

Crowds are expected to reach numbers in the thousands.

Heads up to those planning on coming out to the parade, there are some changes made.

“The reviewing stand for the parade has moved, a lot of people like to sit near the stand and it is where we judge all of bands and our floats and so forth. That is actually going to be a across from regions bank on 13th street at the entrance of the arts and crafts,” said Chairman Shawn Stearns.

Over 160 floats will run the parade route.
