My Birthday and the Apple Fest





Today we drove to Wachusett Mountain for the Apple Fest. It is going on next weekend too and I would highly recommend it.



It was free for our kids because they were under 6 and most of what we did was included. There were 3 large Jumpers, a hayride that was pulled by a giant snow tractor, a Monster truck, and German dancing which happened to be right next to the Beer Tent. Only $4.50 for some Pumpkin Ale -please and thank you.

The foliage was beautiful and much missed by this Worcester girl. Cape Cod just can't hang when it comes to the leaves changing color.

The bad news was that the camera battery died about 30 minutes into the day-UGH!!! I just can't seem to remember everything.

The food was great and bountiful. They had normal German fare and then regular food in the cafeteria but the goods were outside in the tents. Maple cotton candy, kettle corn, apple donuts ( which I am enjoying now hot from the micro) and the greatest sugared waffles fresh off the waffle iron and into your hand.

There is also a huge section of crafter from local and as far as Cape Cod. A woman is trying to sell my daughter a purse( funny enough) and she is from Centerville. I did take her card as she does purse birthday parties. Try explaining to a 5 yo how we can make this at home for a lot less than $20.

God what else- Balloon makers galore and even a couple of teenagers painting faces.

We brought my sister and that was fun - the kids really enjoyed her coming along too.
