Apple Jack Festival & Arbor Lodge Park

My sister, her boyfriend, Nate, and I made the drive up to Nebraska City for their yearly Apple Jack Festival. We walked around Arbor Day Farms, checking out the craft fair and the barns. They have so many yummy apple treats from caramel apples and pies, to apple wines and apple cider. Despite the cold, damp day I decided to enjoy an apple cider slushy. Must say it was a cold decision, but very tasty!Gap Sweatshirt

After trekking all over the farms we headed into town to take a peak at a couple other things Nebraska City had going on for the Apple Jack Festival. We went to the Factory Stores to take a look at the flea market booths they had set up. We also went to the Cincinnati House that is home to a little antique shop. They had a lot of political memorabilia, but in the upstairs level I found my piece of treasure. I found a cute green rocking chair that is just perfect for the nursery. Best part is was the inexpensive price tag, and the fact that it doesn’t squeak one bit! Doesn’t hurt it is comfy too!Arbor Lodge Park sweatshirt, umbrella, skirt, boots

When done in town we went back towards the farm, and decided to take pictures at the Arbor Lodge Park. We wanted to walk around the Morton family mansion, but didn’t have the cash on hand to take the tour. It is probably for the best. I usually prefer to do the exploring on my own anyway. The four of us decided to hit the trail around the park instead. We all had varying footwear, and I was the only one that had shoes that worked best for the sometimes non existent trail. Thankfully, nobody fell down or twisted an ankle. Our only dangerous run in was Austin almost being attacked by a squirrel. This left us doubled over in laughter for several minutes before we could finish up the trail.pattern skirt, boots, sweatshirt

All in all the Apple Jack Festival was a lot of fun despite the rain. This weekend if the baby hasn’t already made its arrival we will be heading up to the Barn Festival in Hastings, NE. Do you attend any fall festivals? Which ones?hiking in a skirtsisters

    • Definitely a fun fall activity. I have another festival to attend tomorrow. I just wish I could have gone to a few fun fall blogger meet ups.

  2. that cider slush sounds so good. I’ve been to Nebraska City, but never stayed to shop…it’s usually a stop for coffee on our way to Lincoln.
