Celebrate the ap­ple at Colby-Curtis

Stanstead Journal - - LEN NOXVILLE NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

You’ll find a lot more than a history les­son at the Colby-Curtis Mu­seum this Satur­day: the Ap­ple­Fest is back! There will be face-paint­ing, arts and crafts, ap­ple-bob­bing and other old-fash­ioned games for the young ones, and lots of good food and live mu­sic for ev­ery­one else. “There will be fresh ap­ple juice tast­ings and lots of ap­ple pies, ap­ple crisps and other ap­ple desserts for sale. We hope it will be nice be­cause we’re hold­ing the ac­tiv­i­ties out­side and in the barn. We’ll also set up some small tents out­side,” said Chloe Southam, the mu­seum’s di­rec­tor. Hot-dogs and other re­fresh­ments will also be for sale. Lo­cal fid­dler Larry Davis and his band will be back for the event, pro­vid­ing some lively, toe-tap­ping tunes through­out the af­ter­noon.

The kids will also get a chance to learn about healthy food in a fun way from the

trav­el­ling mem­bers of Les Aven­turi­ers du Gout who will an­i­mate food ac­tiv­i­ties dur­ing the day.

This event is also a chance to get a guided tour of the mu­seum free of charge. There are sev­eral ex­hibits go­ing on: the per­ma­nent ex­hibit, Vic­to­rian Fam­ily Rit­u­als, Agri­cul­tural Fairs in Stanstead County and the ex­hibit of The World Sculp­ture Pro­ject which fea­tures the art­work that was un­earthed last week at the mu­seum.

The Colby-Curtis Mu­seum’s an­nual Ap­ple­Fest takes place this Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 3rd, from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm.
