Harvest on the Ridge

You did not have to travel to Downtown Grand Rapids to get a good taste of community spirit. Nor did you have to travel to the Deltaplex in Walker for the Country Rib Jam to get a taste of some great music or ribs; there was celebration everywhere including the Sparta Harvest on the Ridge Apple Festival. Activities began Friday, and Saturday there was a Barbeque Cook Off that was second to none. Numerous Alpine Township residents or employees participated in the festivities in celebration of the harvest. There was Art in the Park, Visits to Orchards, and lots more judging, including of course the best Apple Pie.
