Big Brothers Big Sisters, big peach jam
The Peach Jam Festival & 5K, benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Shelby County, takes place on Sat., July 29th, 2017. The event features a unique, non-competitive 5K run/walk through Shelby County’s beautiful Mulberry Orchard followed by a pancake breakfast for both runners and non-runners. Participants can register online at www.bbbsky.org/events. Entry fee is $25 per person and includes an event t-shirt.
Round out the day with music, delicious farm-fresh fare and family entertainment like hay rides into the orchard to see Mulberry Orchard’s 17 varieties of peaches and 16 types of apples. Visit with the animals. Play in the kid’s area with its corn maze and super slide. Shop at Mulberry Kitchen for local honey, jellies, preserves and lots of fresh produce, and treat yourself to fresh-made apple cider donuts, fried apple or peach pie, caramel apples and other goodies.
