Optimist Club of Vancouver, WA help celebrate the oldest apple tree

The Optimist Club of Vancouver, WA is hosting an old-fashioned baking contest as part of the family-friendly Old Apple Tree Festival celebrating the oldest apple tree in Washington state on October 3. According to the Vancouver urban forestry division, the tree is 182 years old. 

As part of the event, apples from the tree will be given away as well as tree cuttings - one per household - while supplies last.  The festival will be held at Old Apple Tree Park, located on Columbia Way just east of Interstate 5 Bridge.
Activities at the festival include live music, children's activities, pruning classes, ask the arborist, and the Optimist Club baking contest.  How fun and tasty!  Download a flyer for the baking contest here.
