When it comes to fall festivals in my area, the biggest is the LaFayette Apple Festival. In two days, 50,000 people attend the festival to enjoy all kinds of apple goodies, carnival rides, craft tents and entertainment. All of this happens under the watchful eye of Johnny Appleseed. Whose legend of planting apple trees makes him a very suitable mascot for the popular festival.

    Nice photo, the lines are all leading the viewer to Mr. Appleseed’s face. I had to find out why this smiling man was dressed with a pan at his head, so I went to Wikipedia once again, very interesting reading. It didn’t mention pots on heads, though. Seems like a nice tradition to have this Festival, and no skyscrapers…
