Apples on parade in annual festivities

Greensburg — The fifth annual Apple Fest will be held at HighPoint Orchard this weekend, Oct. 13 and 14.

Saturday and Sunday are sure to be chilly Autumn afternoons while HighPoint celebrates warm apple pies and warm company. Apple Fest will begin at 9 a.m. and run until to 4 p.m. Saturday, and from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Saturday morning will open with the apple pie tasting contest. HighPoint will begin serving food at 11 a.m. consisting of hot dogs, hamburgers, pulled pork, macaroni and cheese, nachos and cheese and more. The restaurant will not be open during the festival.

Several attractions will be free to the public; Actors dressed in 19th century fashion will set up tents and display craftsmanship such as woodworking, and Rodger Williams will be demonstrating how to make cider with an antique apple press.

A gentleman dressed as Abraham Lincoln will read the James Witcomb Riley story, and wagon rides will be available, which will take visitors around the HighPoint property to view the orchards.

A pumpkin roll is planned at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday, and again at 2 p.m. Sunday.

The “Fall Bazaar” will also be available to shoppers, and will include vendors such as Mary Kay, 31, and Paparazzi. There is still opportunity to contact HighPoint for anyone wishing to be a vendor.

On Sunday a magician is planned to appear, as well as a character artist.

For further information, or to ask about being a vendor, call 812-663-4534. HighPoint Orchard is owned by Karen and Randy Cyman, and is located on 3321 N. Old Highway 421.
