Lots of things go together -- peanut butter and jelly, salt and pepper, apples and Tehachapi. Celebrate the latter from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 12 in the Tehachapi Apple Festival at Rail Road Park in downtown Tehachapi, just in time for the apple harvest. Apples have a storied history in Tehachapi, and T-town grown apples today are still shipped throughout the state.
The free family-friendly event will feature craft vendors, food booths, kids events and other apple-focused festivities. A portion of the proceeds will benefit two local charities: Make-A-Wish Foundation and Tehachapi Rotaract Club.
