Enjoy the beautiful fall weather at the 26th Annual Apple Harvest Festival, sponsored by AppleTree Credit Union. On Saturday, September 22 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Retzer Nature Center, S14 W28167 Madison Street in Waukesha, will be the place for family fun.
Families are sure to enjoy the Children’s Area, full of crafts and games, horse-drawn wagon rides from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the many art and craft vendors, and the guided nature hikes at 10:15 a.m., 12:15 p.m. and 2:15 p.m.
Bring the whole family together with the folk music of Ken Lonnquist from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Visit the craft fair for demonstrations by numerous art and craft vendors or stroll down Scarecrow Lane. Then, take a break inside and visit the “3-2-1 BLASTOFF” Charles Horwitz Planetarium Show. Shows will begin every half hour from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tickets are $2 for adults and $1 for children and senior citizens.
Due to this year’s weather, local apples were unavailable, so we will not have individual apples for sale. Come and learn how the weather and climate indeed control the harvest that Mother Nature provides us. There will still be the favorite apple pie, apple crisp and caramel apples!
Enter a pie in the apple pie baking contest by 10:30 a.m. and have it judged at 11 a.m. Who will be the big winner this year? Or enter AppleTree Credit Union’s coloring contest for kids three to eight years old. Your child could win a $25 Visa Gift Card. Find more information by logging on to www.appletree.org.
