In an era when society's fabric consists of much texting, twittering, and other remote communication, it's nice to have events such as the Apple Harvest Festival, which is pastoral rather than technological, and temporal rather than, like, constant.
The weekend-long event is billed as "a celebration of food, fun, and Fall." Argue with that.
Also, it is free.
Centered on the Ithaca Commons are hundreds of food and craft vendors, and entertainers.
The complete schedule of music is available at www.downtownithaca.com.
Small World Music carries a lot of the local music you will hear at the Festival, and has all music at 10% off for Ithaca Blog readers. Not just local, but everything - pop and rock, Latin, African, reggae, folk, blues, gospel, jazz various world music - everything we carry. Just mention this posting for the discount.
Small World Music (for our out-of-town readers) is six blocks due west of the Commons, at 614 W. State St., down the driveway.
We hope to see you & hope you have fun!
