Summer-ending festival falls into place

September 15, 2013 by  

The 2013 Ciderfest Craft Fair featuring the Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze will be taking place on two different weekends in September and October. In the area, the fair acts as an indication that summer is over and fall is on its way.

The event will start off with a pancake breakfast on the grounds of the Louisburg Cider Mill. Guests will be able to watch apples being pressed into cider, which they can then buy along with doughnuts, kettle corn, and caramel apples, or they can enjoy a sample taste of Lost Trail Root Beer. There will also be live bluegrass and country music to stomp along to, and arts and crafts booths at which to look for early holiday gifts.

Attractions at the Pumpkin Patch and the Corn Maze will include rides on a hay wagon, farm animals, and a children’s activity area including a giant slide and a moonwalk. The Corn Maze looks sure to present a challenge, since it is spread out over 10 acres.

This fair will probably attract visitors from all over, including nearby Overland Park. Local printing companies will probably be supplying the organizers of the event with products, such as banners to be used to highlight various areas of the fair and draw attention to vendors.

The 2013 Ciderfest Craft Fair will take place at Louisburg Cider Mill on September 28-29 and October 5-6. Admission is free. Tickets for the Pumpkin Patch and the Corn Maze are $8 or free to those aged three and under. To learn more about the events taking place, call 913-837-5202.
