LISBON, Ohio (WYTV) – The Johnny Appleseed Festival took place Sunday in Lisbon.

The festival had all kinds of apple desserts like apple ice cream, dumplings and fritters. But the event also brings more money into the city and attracts people to Lisbon that may have never been there.

“The businesses that are open, they have people in all the time,” said Marilyn McCullough, chairman of the festival. “And a lot of people have never been in their shops.”

Hayley McElroy was named the 2016 Johnny Appleseed Festival Queen.

Next year will mark the 50th year of the festival.
