Despite the rain, hundreds of people came out to the second day of the Apple Butter Festival at Roscoe Village in Coshocton.

This is the 44th year for the themed festival that primarily focuses on the preparation of the fall favorite, apple butter.

"They come in really really early in the morning and they start their fire," said PR and Marketing Manager at Roscoe Village, Debbie McDonald. They start putting in all the ingredients, they stir all day long and get the apple butter nice and thick and then they can it at the end. "

Along with the famous apple butter, McDonald says that there are plenty of other fun activities for families to participate in while walking through the festival.

"We have 98 craft vendors here, we have food vendors, we have great entertainment on the stage, we have kids activities that you can do and of course we have the stirring of the apple butter you can do over an open fire. "

If you missed the Apple Butter Festival on Saturday, there are no worries, it will run again on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Roscoe Village. Admission is $5 per person.
