ITHACA, NY — It’s rained both days of the 34th Annual Apple Harvest Festival, but that hasn’t been enough to deter crowds of hundreds from flooding downtown Ithaca, hungry for street and stage performances, family activities, and a whole lot of apples.
Running concurrently with Apple Fest this year was Gnome & Fairy Fest hosted at Press Bay Alley, which featured a variety of fantasy-themed attractions. Many of the attendees arrived in costume–a reminder that Ithaca’s Wizarding Weekend is just around the corner.
Though Gnome & Fairy Fest was a special one day only event, Apple Fest won’t close up until 6pm tonight. You’ve still got plenty of time to grab yourself some cider donuts (if you’re willing to brave the line).
Below are over 30 photos taken at both Apple Fest and Gnome & Fairy Fest by two of our newest interns, Alisha Tamarchenko and Alex Anderson.
