TOP 5 Things to do with Apples this Fall in Winchester

 

1. PICK THEM!

3. EAT THEM!

Enter the Apple Pie Eating Contest at the Shenandoah Valley Apple Harvest Festival, and see if you have what it takes to win!

 

4. BAKE THEM IN A PIE!

Enter the Apple Pie Baking Contest at the Shenandoah Apple Harvest Festival - the winner gets $100!

 

5. SHOOT THEM OUT OF A CANNON!

Visit West Oaks Farm Market at one of their fall festivals, (Apple Festival is September 28) and see if you can hit a target with their apple cannon.
