It wasn't the best weather, but hearty New Englanders didn't let a little drizzle dampen the annual Apple Harvest Day in Dover.

 

It was also the annual WOKQ Apple Pie Contest. The adult division saw 17 pies entered and the youth division had three pies. As always, we had a few people wait until the very last minute to bring their warm apple pie to the Rotary Arts Pavilion for the judges to enjoy.
