BURLINGTON — The Apple Harvest Festival will skip another year. 

The auxiliary of Burlington United Methodist Children's Home met Thursday night and canceled the annual festival, scheduled for Oct. 1-3. The group said the resurgence of Covid-19 with the Delta variant is the reason. 

The festival was called off in 2020 amid the pandemic and after a fire in the spring destroyed much of the apple-butter-making equipment. Burlington says look for the festival's return in 2022.
