The show’s food has a history of tastiness. This year the food takes a sweet turn with hand-churned ice cream added to the endless array of harvest favorites. Back by popular demand are fried green tomatoes, pork-o-bobs, big-foot toes, cowboy tacos and turkey legs.
Wash it all down with fresh apple cider or old-time root beer. The spread offers festival-goers a chance to sample unique and delicious foods.
Not to be overlooked is the natural scenery the festival’s location provides. The state park is home to many evergreens, and the changing colors of the area’s maple, oak and ash trees provide a stunning contrast among the greens. The vibrant hues of red, orange and gold foliage create the perfect setting for the festival and its variety of outdoor activities.
Admission to the festival is free. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
