Hay Creek Apple Festival 2018


Another chilly fall day yesterday, but that did not stop us from attending the annual Hay Creek Apple Festival - besides, it didn't rain so we could live with it. This festival offers many things to do - historical sites, great homemade PA Dutch food, rides for the kiddies, and a rather large flea market.



The Historic Joanna Furnace ...
The excavation area ...

This barn showcases technology before the Industrial Revolution ...


A miniature railroad train display ...


Pony rides for the kids ...

and tractor trailer car rides as well ...

 PLENTY of goodies to see and buy at the flea market ...



I always make sure to bring home some delicious homemade chocolate from Lorah's Handmade Chocolate Company ...

A really awesome Greek Goddess tin for only $2.00!!! It represents Demeter, Persephone, Hestia, Artemis, Hera, Rhea, Athena, and Aphrodite.  

And also a cute Halloween flag for only $5.00.

Some yummy good PA Dutch cuisine for dinner ...


Everything from hot fresh kettle popcorn, apple dumplings and crisps, apple fritters, funnel cakes, and freshly cooked homemade soups such as chicken noodle, ham and bean, and vegetable soups.


A sausage sandwich with tomato sauce.

I am glad we had the chance to go this year. It is always a good time at this festival!!

Our day trip to New Hope, PA


Saying hello to Deb and Dave's kitty, Jack before we left yesterday morning ...

On our way ...

We stopped off for breakfast at a Perkin's Restaurant ...

 Dave 'n' Deb.

It is about a two hour drive from Reading, PA. When we got there, we had lunch (and later on dinner) at a pub called "Fran's."

We did some shopping around the village ...
One of my favorite and long-time Wiccan shops, Mystickal Tymes.


A few meditation stones for my altar room.

An amazing hot sauce shoppe ...
A sign outside of a tie dye shop.
The Bucks County Playhouse located along a beautiful little waterfall on the Delaware River.

 Dozens of delicious places to eat and dine-out.

Every time we visit New Hope, we find a few changes since the last time we were there. What was once a cool little strip mall called "The Four Seasons" has now been bought out and turned into a food deli currently called "Ferry Market." I bought these yummy homemade whoopee pies ... red velvet  and mint chip flavored.
Some great snacks!
I found this at a wine store called, "Crossing Vineyards."

A sweet wooden mermaid decoration.

Found these in a toy shoppe to add to my collection of Pusheen Cat holiday plushes.

And of course, I could not pass up the opportunity to pick up this cute little vintage Halloween cat dress at "Thirteen Vintage."
The day was a bit chilly with temps not going up over the high 50's, but we didn't mind much. It was still a pretty good day! On the way home, we saw this peacock wondering around in someone's yard while waiting at a traffic light ...

Today, off to another annual fall event called The Haycreek Apple Festival! Have a great day all!
