Mirror staff reports:

A new festival may become the apple of Federal Way's eye.

The Federal Way Farmers Market will host the first Apple Festival and Run on Saturday, Aug. 24.

Attendees can sample and vote for the best apple pies. There will also be live entertainment, games for kids, apple cider, carmel apples, raffle prizes and more.

Tara Uson-Fee, who is Miss Teen Washington, will attend the festival with her crown and sash. In addition, dozens of farmers market vendors will sell food, locally grown produce and other delights. Kids-themed activities include storytelling with a kangaroo, a juggler on a unicycle, interaction with mascots, and an Apple Cup Cider Run.

The market is located near the Sears parking lot at The Commons mall, S. 324th St. and Pacific Highway S., and is open 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays through October. Admission and parking are free.

The Apple Festival includes a timed 10K and 5K run/walk on the BPA Trail in Federal Way. The race begins at 8:30 a.m.; registration is $30. Individuals, families and teams are invited to participate. Prizes will be awarded to first-, second- and third-place finishers.
