The spirit of John Chapman, known to most people as Johnny Appleseed, must be smiling on Sheffield this weekend, delivering a perfect weather forecast for the festival that bears his monicer.
The festival, now in its sixth year, has become a highlight of Warren County activities in mid-fall, a chance to get outside in soft weather one more time before winter sets in to delight in the entertainment, competition and community atmosphere Sheffield has to offer.
And, the apogee of the Johnny Appleseed Festival, the Lumberjack and "Jill" competition, featuring axe and saw wielding athletes from around the country and even overseas, will return on Saturday.
The whole thing gets started in earnest today, with music, food and - new this year - a cornhole contest.
The thing about community festivals in Warren County, all you have to do is show up. You don't have to buy a ticket to get in. The only requirement is that you have to be ready to have a good time.
So, enjoy the sun; enjoy the food; tap your toes; and forget that you have to go back to work on Monday. Sheffield is having a party.
