Apple harvesting time came a little early this year in Adams County, Pennsylvania, but that could never deter the Apple Harvest Festival, held annually the first two full weekends in October. I volunteer at the candy and caramel apple stand every year as a fundraiser for my softball team. It was a cold one this year; 29 degrees when I arrived at 8am and we would gather around the kettles to keep warm in between wrapping up batches of apples to sell. Candy apples are a little messy and hard to eat for my taste, but man, are those caramel ones to die for.
National Geographic named the Apple Harvest Festival on it’s Top 10 Fall Trips for 2012. Save the date for next year’s festival; it’s not to be missed! October 5 & 6 and October 12 & 13, 2013.
