When the Chambersburg Apple Fest began 21 years ago, it was focused on apples, but several visitors said Saturday it was crafts that drew them to the event this year. Debi Pisko, 31, of Smithsburg, went to the festival after her aunt, Joyce Spinn of Greencastle, Pa., told her it had a lot of craft vendors. There were about 200 craft and food vendors.
