Ithaca's annual Apple Harvest Festival falls, at the start of Fall, not too far from the trees, on the downtown Commons, this Friday - Sunday.
The festival includes music, carnival rides, street performers, food vendors, beverage tastings, crafts, and a certain amount of what you might call apples. "Lots of apples," says the festival's publicity, at downtownithaca.com,which also provides a full event schedule.
We hate to note it, but just as the weather is usually sublime for Porchfest, it is usually ridiculous for the Apple Fest, windy and cold and sometimes rainy. Apples are healthy, but maybe not necessarily lucky.
So, if the weather is good, come out and enjoy, and if it is bad, come out and support. It's the last big outdoor community event for a while.
