Applefest Provides Bushels of Fun

Posted:

If you'd like to see how apples are pressed...

you may want to check out Applefest.

Families gather at Buckstop Junction in Bismarck, excited to check out the food, craft vendors, and entertainment.

But you can't have Applefest without apples.

These volunteers are having bushels of fun making old-fashioned pressed apple cider.

The apples are locally grown, collected, and put into this hand crank grinder.

So...how about them apples?

"Everybody seems to be amazed where apple juice comes from. Why, I don't know but it is and they see that it's a darker color so it's pure apple juice, you know, versus what you buy in the store would be clear. And it's more tart. You know, they're probably surprised on the taste because there's no sugar added," says Mylo Kramer, Applefest Volunteer.

If you want to taste that homemade apple juice, you still have your chance.

Applefest also runs tomorrow from 11am until 4pm.

All proceeds benefit the Bismarck Cancer Center Foundation.
