The fruits of their labor are a-peeling

It takes a lot to get ready for the Apple Butter Festival in Grand Rapids.

Local residents and volunteers bring in their paring knives and pans to peel enough apples to make 2,800 pints of apple butter, which will be sold at the festival.

The festival also includes crafts, demonstrations, and entertainment from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 10.
