Piney Run Apple Fest offers more than fruit

October 16, 1992|By Maureen Rice | Maureen Rice,Contributing Writer

If you're trying to eat the recommended five servings a day of fruits and vegetables, the place to be tomorrow is the Apple Fest at Piney Run Park.

Apples there will come in all guises -- served up as pies, cider, dumplings, jams and apple butter, to mention a few.

For exercise, there are nature trails to hike; then you can take a break on a scenic pontoon boat ride.

Test your coordination in a three-legged race, or try your artistic skills painting pumpkins.

Join a hayride through the woods. Stuff a scarecrow to decorate for Halloween.

Press your own cider, or tell your kids to do it.

Try your skill in canoe tours or see another's in iron-forging and glass-blowing demonstrations.

Laugh with the kids at storytelling time.

Admire the efforts of local amateur photographers.

Discover the secret of making apple butter.

Meet Piney Run's new raptors (birds of prey).

Find out what makes bees buzz and birds sing.

The festival also presents a chance to buy holiday presents early -- crafts people will be on hand with country crafts, baskets, crystals, stained glass and, of course, apples.

It all happens tomorrow at Piney Run Park on White Rock Road in Eldersburg, rain or shine, from 10:00 a.m. to 5 p.m.
