  1. I was there yesterday with my 2 year old grandaughter. She had so much fun doing the kids crafts, picking pumpkins and gourds in the pumpkin patch. We had lunch and watched them make apple butter and we tasted different varieties of apples. It was such a fun day I’m thinking about going back on October 17th. And I wouldn’t have known about the festival if I hadn’t read it in Nelson Magazine. Thanks for what you do!!
