Bloomfield Apple Festival

Friday, October 5, 2012

Art Woodward, of Owesnburg, brought apples back to the Bloomfield Apple Festival this year. Here, Woodward is shown grabbing apples and using a hand-cranked grinder to make apple juice. He and his wife, Edith, have a booth set up that also offers apple pies, apple crumb crisp with cream cheese filling, apple turnovers, apple butter and apple jelly. Woodward said it takes about 150 apples to make a gallon and a half of juice.

I really enjoyed having the parade on the web. I had several family members and friends in the parade and I had to work today. So I was glad to be able to watch it but it would have been better if the camera wasn't being blocked by the people on the right. Would have been nice if they were asked to move over a little. Thank you for the live stream.:))
