“So we thought, Monday there is nothing going on, but it is a holiday. So why don’t we put a new feature into the chestnut festival and what better way to celebrate the fall then the beloved grain, said Commissioner of Tourism, Tim Weaver.
The Bierfest also included many home made chestnut products and demonstrations on how to score or cut open and roast the american chestnut.
