The drive to Weston is well worth it this weekend as they celebrate Applefest for the 29th year in historic downtown Weston. Known throughout the Midwest as one of the best fall festivals in Missouri, you won’t want to miss all that Applefest has to offer. Come early on Saturday morning to enjoy Weston’s hometown parade along Main Street. There will be over 60 art and craft booths to peruse along with the many unique Weston shops. Watch apple butter being made and purchase a jar to take home. Kids will love to work the apple press to see how apple cider is made. Weston’s famous apple dumplings, apple pies, and cookies will be available, and you can catch a quick and tasty bite at the Applefest Food Court. Children’s activities both days are planned in the park with pony rides, face painting, pumpkin painting, and more.
