It’s all about the apples at the Huntington Historical Society’s annual Apple Festival on Sunday October 18 from noon to 4 p.m. The event takes place at the historic Kissam House on Park Avenue in Huntington Village, and there are lots of activities for the whole family.
There will be apples of course, donated by Richters Orchard in Northport, as well as apple cider, apple pie and candy apples. Other food items are pretzels, grilled hot dogs, chocolates donated by Bon Bons Chocolatier and sweets from Reinwalds Bakery, both in Huntington.
Various vendors will be selling jams, preserves and pickles, and there will be children’s crafts and games as well as hay rides. The most popular activity is scarecrow making. Bring old clothes to stuff, and hay and string will be provided.
Adults may enjoy a bread making demonstration in an outdoor beehive oven, or take a tour of Kissam House and view their current exhibit, “Going Under Cover,” which features ladies lingerie from the late 1800s to the early 1900s.
Looking for a pet? The North Shore Animal League will also be on hand if you are interested in adopting a dog or cat.
Admission to the Apple Festival is free, and is open to members and non-members of the Huntington Historical Society.
