We spent the day eating apple dumplings, cider doughnuts, caramel apples, and waffles. Activities included a fantastic raptor demonstration, a hayride, and two rides on the sky lift. Except for a bland lunch, I'd say it was a great day. Great company and lots of laughing too. We arrived early-- at 11 am -- which turned out to be smart. By 2 pm the festival was mobbed with people, including screaming children and wobbling elderly people. The Apple Fest attracts its share of large families, and the odd group of queers here and there too.
