2008 Apple Harvest Festival – Saturday

September 27, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments
Apple Harvest 2008
Dateline: 9/27/08 – Downtown Southington, CT
The 40th Annual Apple Harvest Festival was supposed to kick off yesterday, Friday evening, but the rain from the slow-moving Kyle system forced the officials to postpone the opening.The plus side is that we were already prepped a day early, so getting ready this morning was not the usual controlled chaos.
The weather is still lousy, and it’s been raining off and on, but the rain isn’t especially bad, and people are trickling down. We’ve already sold some of our delicious friend apple wedgies and a few Philly steak sandwiches, and right now most of the crew is hanging out inside the lodge. After fighting a bit to connect to our new wireless network, half the people are glued to the local Doppler maps with fingers crossed.
A couple of the guys set up a small portable tent in front of our sandwich booth, so that customers can wait out of the rain. Great idea! Now we just need to entice a few more in.
If the weather isn’t too bad, then the parade will take place tomorrow, early afternoon. The rain date will be next Sunday.
