Hay Creek Festival ~ 2013


Well, it looks like yet another great year at The Hay Creek Apple Festival held at Joanna Furance! The weather was gorgeous, they had a huge crowd, and everything was just fantastic!! We love this event and never miss it! There is always so much to see and do from the special handmade crafts to the antique and classic car show ...

Musical entertainment both on stage and off


 
 

"Twinkles Animal Rescue Candles" sold by The Animal Rescue League
 
 
 
 
Homemade Applesauce
 
Glassblowers exhibit 

 
Scented Gemstone jewelry by Sculps Hill Herbs
 
 
Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup & Chicken Pot Pie
 
 
 
Miniature ponies

 
And I met a very nice Hedgewitch/Herbalist named Linda Kerlin who lives in Elizabethown, PA. She owns a large Victorian Home and every year she invites the public to her Samhain/Halloween celebration! For those guests who are not Wiccan/Pagan, she explains the history of the Holiday of Halloween itself and the meaning and symbolism behind it. As for those of us who are Wiccan/Pagan, we already understand the ritual she is performing, but I think it is a very good idea since it educates those who have many misconceptions about witches, and Paganism in general ...

All in all, pretty awesome day! Have a great Sunday everyone!!!
