Two great events will be held this Sunday, September 11th, across from our New Hampshire Country Inn at Alyson’s Orchard in Walpole, NH. There is a day of fun-filled activities for the whole family planned for Alyson’s Orchard Apple Festival beginning at 10am. The fun includes a pie contest for kids and adults with judging and prizes awarded, PYO apples, tractor rides through the orchard, horse drawn wagon rides, a live radio broadcast with music and prizes, fruit wine tasting, and a cider-making demonstration.
There will also be Pit Stop BBQ, Walpole Creamery Ice Cream, face and body painting, Gemma’s Linzer cookies and pony rides available for purchase. Check Alyson’s Orchard’s website for schedule and details.
Beginning at 2:30pm a family contra dance will round out the day with music, dancing, and wonderful food. Sophia’s Hearth Family Center will be holding their third Annual Contra Dance and Silent Auction in conjunction with Alyson’s Apple Festival. The dances will be called by Mary DesRosiers and music played by local musicians. This contra dance is for all ages and families are encouraged to attend. Refreshments will include hearty soups prepared by the Works Bakery Cafe and local handmade artisan bread from Orchard Hill Breadworks. Tickets are $10 each or $25 for a family. A silent auction will take place during the contra dance as well with proceeds from the dance and auction benefiting the families with young children served by Sophia’s Hearth Family Center.
