Celebrate the arrival of Fall in the 1875 town of Walnut Hill during our annual Applefest! Try your hand at stirring the copper kettle of apple butter, take your turn cranking the cider press, and try some tasty apple fritters. Family fun also includes apple bowling, cooking demonstrations, bobbing for apples, and a special visit from Snow White. Watch the Walnut Hill Bluestockings compete in an 1870s-rules baseball game at 1:30pm. Apples, pies, fudge, and more will be available for purchase from Iowa Orchard.
