Johnny Appleseed’s Birthday
September 21, 2019 @ 10:00 am - September 22, 2019 @ 6:00 pm
This weekend we honor a uniquely American folk hero, John Chapman a.k.a Johnny Appleseed. Johnny Appleseed was all about spreading apple trees as he moved west with settlers, establishing small apple tree nurseries that grew trees to sell to emerging farmsteads across much of the Midwest.
Lots of tasty apples that are now picking, and this weekend we will hold a search for the biggest and smallest apple (by weight). Prizes for each awarded both days. We will also have Chuck, our very engaging balloon artist doing his thing from noon to 4pm each day.
