Celebrate fall at the 43rd National Apple Harvest Festival in Arendtsville, Pa., 10 miles northwest of Gettysburg. The festival, created by the Adam's County Fruitgrowers Association, began in 1965 and includes something for everyone: more than 300 arts and crafts vendors, antique and classic cars, puppet shows, and pony and hay rides. Live music will be played on six stages. Festivalgoers can eat an array of foods, including barbecue, rib-eye steak sandwiches, apple butter, kettle corn, apple fritters and sweet potato fries.

The festival is today and Oct. 13 and 14 at the South Mountain Fairgrounds on Route 234 in Arendtsville, which is less than a two-hour drive from Baltimore. General admission tickets are $8 for adults and $7 for seniors; children younger than 12 are free. For information, call 717-677-9413 or go to
