(BLOOMFIELD) - The Bloomfield Order of the Eastern Star (OES) will be hosting the Bloomfield Apple Festival Little Miss, Little Mister and their Court contest again this year.
All Greene County children through the age of six are invited to participate in the contest that will be judged on September 27 in the Bloomfield Town Park South Shelterhouse at 4 p.m. and the winners will be announced later that day.
All contestants are asked to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the event for check in.
Judging will be done by out of county judges prior to the festival this year so that the Little Miss and Little Mister can reign over the Apple Festival for the entire weekend.

Each child will receive a bag full of prizes and the winners will receive additional prizes.
