It was that time of year again when Harrisburg residents got to go pick their apples close to home. And what great ones there seem to be in Harrisburg right now, arriving just in time for the city’s 13th annual Apple Fest. Last weekend there was so much more than just apple-picking fun. Engage in this fun family activity on a tractor wagon ride or horse-drawn hayride. And for those who have filled their baskets to the brim with apples, they were able to send their kids out to enjoy a pony ride, or a train ride especially tailored for little ones. For those with boundless energy, the inflatable playground no doubt exhausted them and the artistic kids were able to enjoy some face painting. The Apple Fest is truly so much more than an apple-picking fete; it’s fun for everyone.
So that was what was going on in the city Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th, located three miles south of Sioux Falls on Minnesota Avenue. If you missed it this year, be sure to check it out next year; it really is a fun thing to do.
