Things to do this weekend…Apple Fest- cancelled!

I am absolutely devistated to announce that the annual South Hero Apple Fest has been CANCELLED.  A festival that everyone- locals, leaf peepers, kids, crafters, orchard owners, etc- looks forward to has been cancelled due to the fact that the field that is the designated “parking lot” has been flooded & there is sadly no where else for the thousands of people who attend to park.  I’m sure that you are thinking the same thing that I am- “there really isn’t any other place in the whole gosh darn town for people to park?!?!”- but alas, it has been cancelled & the event that many count on for revenue & fun will not be happening…

According to radio DJs and other sources, the orchards along  South Street (where Apple Fest is usually held) will still be open, but there will just not be a craft fair or other vendors set up along the street.  If you are still interested in going apple picking & getting food, call or check out the orchard websites for their hours of operation.
