Crab (or as The Shellies prefer to call it Crabby) Apple Day is held on the third Saturday in September in Egremont. This year it is taking place on Saturday the 20th of September. Click here to visit their site for further details.
Apples (it used to be crab apples) were thrown into the crowd from a slow moving cart. The world Gurning Championship also takes place at the fair. (Barnacle is telling one and all that Crabby will certainly be crowned the Gurning Champion and all he has to do is look natural.)
