Endicott, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Washington Avenue in Endicott was closed for most of Saturday to make way for autumn's apples.

The village's annual apple festival took over two blocks.
Instead of cars lining the avenue, face painting stations, performances and stands offering seasonal treats brightened the area.

The Mountainside Fruit Market stand from Choconut, Pa., displayed a wide variety of fresh apples.

"It's a terrific apple crop this year," John Dovin said. "Great volume of crop compared to what we had last year. Last year, due to poor weather, we didn't have much crop because of spring damage. But this year, we have a terrific variety of apples."

The Mountainside Fruit Market features apples from the Finger Lakes region, from Gala to McIntosh. They also sell Concord grapes and fresh pressed apple cider.
