Outdoor music & apples

The 14th annual bluegrass gathering is coming up Saturday, September 25th, from 11 to 5 at Apple Acres Farm in South Hiram. It's the same day as the Cornish Apple Festival (you go through Cornish just before you get to Apple Acres). There will be apple picking, cider, cider donuts, a farm store with more apple products, and a chicken BBQ at noon. An exciting feature at Apple Acres is the apple blaster, which is essentially a giant slingshot with which one can 'blast' rotten/windfall apples across the farm pond to a target. It's incredibly addictive. Entrance to the bluegrass gathering is $7 for adults, free for kids under 16. We won't be able to go this year, but used to when the kids were small, and always had a fun time. BYO chairs and blankets.
