It seems like the pleasures of life were simpler back then.  I remember walking out to the apple tree on that little farmstead by Leota Minnesota, plucking a dandy off the branch, sitting down under the tree with the Sporting News and getting lost in the Minnesota Twins of 1965.

A little bit of that warm feeling comes back to Sioux Falls this weekend with the Apple Festival at the Country Apple Orchard 3 miles South of Sioux Falls on Minnesota Avenue.

Bring the whole family for horse drawn hayrides, pony rides, kiddie train rides, inflatables, face painting and all those apple goodies.

And you and the kids and grandkids will pick your own apples off the trees!

This weekend is a great time to make your own family memories.  The Apple Festival will be Saturday and Sunday Sept. 15th and 16th from 10am-5pm.
