Sabine and Ulf Burmeister squeezed apples to pulp

Halcyon Harvest Fest blessed with summery weather

Halcyon Hot Springs event shines under the fall sun.

There were some happy folks out at Halcyon Hot Springs for their third annual Harvest Fest. Unlike the two previous years, this festival was blessed by sunny weather and a good turn out of visitors and vendors alike.

Kids cavorted on the playground near a stage that showcased musical talent who filled the air with music and a happy atmosphere. Summertime, the very appropriate jazz standard for the fine day, wafted through the grassy area.

The pig roast was sold out before 2 p.m., but there were still other goodies to be had, from chocolate to veggies. Mac, galas and an assortment of wild apples were pressed into juice that was sold fresh by the glass. For more permanent purchases there were crafters offering up wood carvings, stained glass and more.

“People love it,” said Sabine Burmeister, General Manager of Halcyon. She loves it too, and thinks having a celebration of what grows in the area is a great thing. “Apples, mushrooms, you name it,” she enthused.

If the festival continues to grow, it will soon be the big apple in the area.
