We attended the 40th Apple Festival at Lincoln county on Saturday. In comparison to last year’s event it was extremely warm on Saturday, actually felt more like the 4th of July instead of mid September. They had a good turn out this year and the event drawn more than 75,000 people.
Lee was checking out a Jewelry vendor.
One of my favorite is the funnel cake, and I didn’t suffer too bad from food allergy after eating this.
A simple dessert of Chocolate-covered banana.
Lee has grown a lot this year, she has no interest in making colorful sand art, face painting or dying her hair to blue or green.
The Horseshoe Ministry, the print on his t-shirt read “Reaching the lost, one horseshoe at a time.”
I think most of us were there for the foods, there were long lines especially for the Jumbo Turkey legs.
It’s nice to see familiar faces, I was fascinated by so many varieties of apples when I first saw him several years back. This is Tom Brown of Heritage Apples and his hobby is finding lost apple varieties.
We bought our apples from Knob’s Creek, and their price is still $10 per bag.
I think this is too funny, I have to show this to Bo’s dad and I think he would probably shake his head.
Since this is the presidential election year, people are out there rooting, and in this case pushing for their candidate.
I’m familiar with cotton and bamboo yarn which are nature fibers, but not llama yarn.
This one is adorable and it would be neat to have as pet.
The line to ride the camel was very long.
I’m glad that I’m not afraid of bees because they were flying everywhere when we approached the Beekeeper’s booths.
I said that I’m not afraid of bees earlier, but certainly not brave enough to hang out with the bees.
The local honey is one of the best and eating local honey is great if you want to avoid seasonal allergies.
Different varieties of peppers on display.
The trash cans were packed to the top, and I would hate to be the cleaning crew.
I’ve never seen a fire-hydrant this tall before.
My dad and second sister taking a break on the way back. We didn’t think we would make it to this year’s Apple Festival since we were camping at Green Mountain but I’m glad we came out.
