Photos: Sparta Persimmon Days Parade


This year’s Sparta Persimmon Days festival included a vendor village with food, crafts and live entertainment at Roller Park and a parade.

Persimmon trees generally bear fruit in September and October, so Sparta’s fall festival coincides with the time when the fruit is usually ripe and fit for eating. Persimmons are often made into pudding, bread, jams or jellies and sometimes pie.
