Lafayette, NY Apple Festival

Approximately 30 miles south of our home is apple country. Apple trees dot the landscape and farms boast U-pick prices (the price I paid was $0.70 per pound) and apple fritter stands (OMG, they are sinful! Apples deep fried in dough and topped with sugar heaven!). In the small town of Lafayette, an annual tradition is their Apple Festival. Its comparable to the Kimmswick Apple Butter Festival in St. Louis that I attended annually… but this is on a country-scale. They have carnival rides, country crafts, farm equipment, wagon rides, farm animal petting zoo, 1000+ lbs pumpkins on display… and of course, APPLE FRITTERS! Yummo! Xander won two goldfish in a carny game, I bought nothing but ate lots. Perfect fall day!
