What an enjoyable day we had at the Louisburg Cider Mill Cider Fest on Saturday! The Cider Mill is located in Louisburg, Kansas, 20 minutes south of Kansas City.
Amy Houts, author of Cooking Around the Country with Kids, and I were invited to sign books at their Cider Fest. We brought my two apple cookbooks, other related apple books, and Amy’s books for kids. We also had coloring pages for the kids, as well as an “apple” stamp for their hands. It was fun interacting with the crowd, telling parents about our books, and just enjoying the beautiful day.
We watched the way apples were put through the process of being made into cider and bottled. We also saw them make doughnuts. Of course we had to sample some of each. The kettle corn and lemon ade across the way was most enticing.
The younger crowd enjoyed the 10- acre Werewolf Corn Maze, another of their attractions. There was also a pumpkin patch, country music, giant slides for kids, and lots of vendors selling their wares. Many visitors found it a great way to spend a beautiful fall day with their family doing fun things.
