Museums of Burlington and the Rocca Sisters presented Applefest on September 16th, a free old-fashioned country fair in the heart of the city, on the grounds of the Ireland House Museum. Thousands of visitors enjoyed pony rides, face painting, feeding baby farm animals and so much more. A balloon twister provided the kids with some very creative balloon figures. There was a hay maze, crafts, an artisan market and tons of apples. The Ireland House Museum remained open for visitors to explore the house, which added a little history to the autumn festivities.
