The LaFayette Apple Festival is this weekend.
The annual event is 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday Oct. 10 and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday Oct. 11. There is also an apple pancake breakfast each day at 7 a.m.
Come to LaFayette -- the heart of Onondaga County's apple country (Beak & Skiff Apple Orchard in LaFayette recently was named the number one orchard in the US in a USA Today poll) -- to experience crafters, free entertainment, artists, nonprofit organizations, a scarecrow contest, king and queen contest and pie contest.
There also are loads of goodies to eat -- in fact everything possible that can be made with apples will be at the festival (especially dumplings, doughnuts and fritters).
Parking is free. Admission is $5 and ages 12 and under are free. Presale tickets for $4 are available at Old Tyme Cafe in LaFayette or Baileys ice cream on Route 11 in Nedrow.
No pets are allowed (only service dogs).
