Last weekend we took the kids to the Apple Butter Festival at Camp Falling Rock . Adam & laugh at the name because it really had little to do with Apple Butter. It would be better named Pioneer Days or something to that effect. Carson joined the cub scouts this year & this was one of their events.
I have to say besides speculation as to what might be at an apple butter festival, it turned out to be a lot of fun & a beautiful fall day to enjoy. The kids did rope making, branding, helped make apple cider, shot bb guns & bows & arrows and walked a rope bridge, to name a few favorites. Every station was run by older scouts( with adult supervision of course).
On the other hand mom & dad were lured into trying mystery meat at the cooking station only to find out AFTER we finished eating ( which was a requirement ) that it was ground hog. YUCK ! It did taste a lot like chicken but much more wild & greasy. It was a good thing they didn't tell us before hand. I don't think they'd get many willing participants. I cannot see ground hog advertised as "The Other White Meat " anytime soon !
Here are some pics of the festivities :)
