It's wonderful to see neighborhood families gather, snacking on apples and lining up to sink their teeth into warm apple pies. There is nothing better then strolling through the square with a hot cup of cider on a cool crisp autumn day. It¹s a great slice of Americana, said Melissa Flynn Executive Director of the Lincoln Square Chamber of Commerce.
If you can¹t make it to an apple orchard this fall, bring the family to Apple Fest; it is free and open to the public.
