Unfortunately, appleumpkins are not a real thing (I know, this crushed my hopes and dreams, too). Regular old apples and pumpkins will have to sate our fall produce needs. But the AppleUmpkin Festival IS real, and is taking place this Saturday and Sunday, September 28-29, in the historic Gaslight Village in Wyoming, NY.
With plenty of vendors, live music and dance performances, and a good old-fashioned baking contest, this is a great opportunity to get away from the normalcies of city/suburb life and step into an old-timey environment, plus to celebrate those aforementioned fall treats. The festival runs 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, and it's free to get in. Check out appleumpkin.com for more information.
