In Flora, IL, the term {appleknocker} represents a festival held by Flora Academic Foundation. The apple is a symbol of education. The festival brings the schools, civic organizations, business and industry to share their resources and knowledge. Arts, industry displays, culture knowledge and performances are made available at no charge for the community. We are harvesting the knowledge of the community and sharing it with our youth.
