There are so many interesting events focusing on apples, such as picking apples, eating apple pies, and the apple butter festival.
Last Sunday, I joined a fun event called “Apple Butter Festival” in Kimmswick, Missouri. I went there with three of my St. Louis friends. Before we left, we ate apple pies to be our appetizer for this event. And we also discussed many delicious foods and had a lot of women’s talk on the way. When we arrived in Kimmswick, there was terrible traffic because this annual event only lasted Saturday and Sunday, so there were hundreds and millions of people there. It was not easy to go inside and find a parking space, but we still found one finally.
Apple Butter Festival is an annual festival for family and friends, and for everyone who want to celebrate fall. Actually, this event was not only for apples, it was more like a large culture market. There were many different stores and stands in this event, including apple farms, Amish jelly, Halloween tools, homemade food and drinks, accessories stores and arts products. There were over 500 vendors on the street, and all of them were very special. Everyone spent money there because they sold different interesting stuff there, such as silly hats for Halloween, delicious food for fall season, interesting stuff for gardening and kitchen.
After shopping, we ate together in a famous restaurant called “The Blue and Owl” restaurant and bakery. It’s an old-fashion restaurant which was opened by Mary. Their food is very delicious and very homemade style. I ordered an Apple Butter Carmel cheesecake to be my appetizer, and also order a home style sandwich to enjoy the meal. It was really yummy, especially eating together with my friends.
I like this event, not only for apple butter, but also for sisters gathering in a restaurant. We had so much fun there. I really enjoyed last weekend and had a good time with my St.Louis friends.
