Saturday, October 11 was the 2nd of the Hay Creek Organization's trifecta of "must see" festivals. The Fall Festival (see post) was last month and Christmas at Joanna is in early December.
This one day festival offers apple pancake breakfast as well as apple fritters, pies, dumplings, crisp, strudel, bread, cider, butter, raw apples, candy and caramel too. All types festival food staples, especially the cast iron kettle cooked over open fire soups, are present as well.
Kids love it for the hay rides, barrel rides, pony rides, scarecrow building, and pumpkin painting. Adults like the history of the general store and museum, blacksmith and woodworking shop, active archaeological dig, diverse item flea market, and even antique cars, plus more.
