FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- This weekend marks the 44th year of the Johnny Appleseed Festival and thousands came out for the fun.

The event stimulated interest of people of all ages who want to know what it was like living during the times of Johnny Appleseed.

The newest feature this year is author Jim Pickett who showcased his new book that gives more insight into the history of the early years of Fort Wayne.

The event organizer Bridget Kelly said this event is a major help to local talent and businesses.

"This festival supports the community because a lot of our food vendors and children's area vendors are non for profits, so the food that you buy is going to help support a good cause," Kelly said.

There are over 28 non for profits that receive help from this event.
