The National Apple Harvest Festival

Today was a change of pace.
The rain has stopped and we headed 10 miles north to the big
Apple Festival.

It was one of the better fairs that we've been to.

The fairgrounds were quite large and both open fields and treed areas.
Thousands of people braved the cloudy skies and came from
many of the neighboring states...  NJ, NY, Va, Md to name a few.

All the usual good stuff...   food, food, and more food,
plus some great old vehicles

A 1920's Mercedes

An Edsel Villager

A working steam engine was powering a lumber mill where they were
making cedar shingles.

In addition to the mechanical exhibits, there was numerous arts and crafts,
pottery, chain saw wood carving, and several musical venues all going on at once.

After eating our way thru the fair, we left with bags of apples and cider.

We topped off the evening with Jim & Kristi and dinner at our place
followed by a couple of games of marbles.

Tomorrow it is off to the Shenandoah Valley.
