ELYRIA — The 38th annual Apple Festival closed another successful year Sunday, organizer Linda Brown said.

“The weekend, the people, and what we had here was absolutely wonderful,” she said.

The event ended with the annual Applefest 5K run and a car show.

Seventy-five 5K participants ran through Elywood and Cascade Parks on Sunday morning.

Broad Street was partially closed into the afternoon for the car show, which Brown said featured 200 cars. A new tradition they added, she said, was giving the car show participants a free meal of coffee and doughnuts in partnership with McDonald’s on the corner of West Avenue.

Brown said many vendors ran out of food during the festival because of the good turnout.

Although the weather was touch and go Friday, when the wind made some tents go airborne, the rest of the weekend cleared up pretty well, she said, with the highest attendance on Saturday.
