Celebrate the apple at Colby-Curtis
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.
