Enjoying the Boxford Apple Festival

On Sunday, September 21st, I was able to once again participate in the Town of Boxford’s annual Apple Festival.  The town’s festival, which has now become a 50-year tradition, featured booths along Elm Street of local crafters, tours of the 1760 Holyoke-French House, vintage automobiles, great food, wonderful music, and apples harvested from area farms!

Hundreds of people turned out on the beautiful, sunny day and caught a glimpse into the life of an agriculturally based community of centuries past by witnessing demonstrations of blacksmithing, and cider pressings on an authentic 19th century cider press.

The Boxford Apple Festival was a lot of fun, and was a great success.  I am grateful to have had the chance to attend the event, and I want to congratulate the Boxford Historical Society for all of their hard work.  Through their efforts, and the efforts of local community supporters, the Apple Festival was a tremendous success.
