Apple Cider Days Fall Festival


Nothing says fall like apple cider, so we had to check out Cider Days in Lakewood, Colorado this past weekend. The festival, which celebrates Lakewood’s agricultural heritage, was held at the Lakewood Heritage Center, which is a neat place to visit any time of the year with its ten historic structures and over 40,000 artifacts showcasing the history of Lakewood. Aside from the usual vendors that seem to appear at any festival of any theme, this one had a lot of fun twists. Apple cider and all things apple were plentiful. Aside from food, we really enjoyed the vintage tractor pull and other demonstrations including apple pressing, butter making, the sock knitting machine, chair caning, and fresh backed apple crisp in the 1930s farmhouse. It turned out to be a great way to spend a beautiful fall day in Colorado.
