One of Humboldt County's best town events (not mentioned in the North Coast Journal "best of" issue) is the Fortuna Apple Harvest Festival. This is one of those hometown celebrations that has middle America written all over it. Wenatchee, Washington. Hendersonville, North Carolina. Ellijay, Georgia and Fortuna, California. All of these towns have Apple Festivals but none as delicious as what the Friendly City offers. It's Americana to the core. Hay wagon rides, applewood BBQ, street fairs, live music around every corner, kid's activities and apple this and apple that.
Here an apple, there an apple everywhere an apple apple.
But, wait--what about that 6th annual Dutch Oven Cook-off in Rohner Park at 1pm.?
We're excited because Yours Trulys have been selected as two of the "celebrity" judges. Our celebrity status is due to the wild popularity of the Above The Fold blog, no doubt. Take that, Chocolate Covered Xanax! You too, Bugs and HH.
