Art and Apple Festival

Rochester, Michigan Annual Arts and Apple Festival

This past weekend was the local 43rd Art and Apple Festival.

Over 250 artists from all over the country came, set up their tents and prayed for good weather.

The municipal park will have hosted over 100 thousand people from Friday through Sunday.


Just after the morning downpour, the sun came out, dried everything and left a perfectly sunny, with a slight cool breeze day.

My nephew is in the local high school marching band, and they provided great entertainment for the crowd. Yo Andy!

The food, the drinks, the entertainment, the home made apple pies, the a'la mode melting in the sun, kids, dogs, old and young. It's always a huge draw to our downtown.

I walked from one end to the other and through the overflow into the blocked off streets with my sister. I'm always amused by the "crap" some call art and left in awe by some beautiful, albeit unaffordable, things.

*also, my other nephew, Captain Obvious, is having a fabulous contest, go check out his post "Pass it On". Just leave a comment for a chance to win!

Yo Andy, indeed! Shortman is asking for a drum kit for his birthday. He's making my head explode with Rock Band. ;-)

What a lovely looking place for a very fun-sounding festival. Especially the pie. I love me some pie.

I went to a crafts fair while I was away and bought a cherry pie to take home. It was half raw! Whoever made it took it out of the oven about half and hour too early. It was ok once we finished baking it, but by then the love was gone...
