As you might imagine the name of this game is all about Apples! The festival is in its 51st year and runs the first 2 weekends of October 5-6 and 12-13, 2019. There is so much for your family to see and do at the festival!

The only thing I miss about living up North is all the fall stuff. Don't get too much of it here in Florida! (But we also don't get the winters either, so everything is a trade-off!) :)

I definitely want to see the Fall Foliage one year!
