|I took this photo last year at the Johnny Appleseed Festival.|
This weekend marks the 40th anniversary of the Johnny Appleseed Festival in Fort Wayne, Indiana. It is a spectacular event for the entire family.
Here are a few of the activities...just a few: apple pie baking contest, battle of the bands, demonstrators' encampment, Settlers' pioneer village and country store, traders' market, living history area, farmers' market and so much more.
Johnny Appleseed, also known as John Chapman will be there meandering the grounds. I will be telling stories on the River Stage on Saturday at 2:00 and again on Sunday at 11:30.
This is a family event and admission is free. Come spend the day, take photos, eat apple dumplings, listen to the pipers, and enjoy welcoming Autumn back as northern Indiana celebrates the life of Johnny Appleseed.
