The People of Apple Fest

Apple Fest was last weekend reminding us that Fall is finally in Ithaca. The commons were filled with food, Ithaca College and Cornell students, families and local business; they all came together to celebrate the 34th Annual Apple Harvest Festival. It was quite the example of our Ithaca Community and quite the collection of apples. We decided to ask the people of Apple Fest what their favorite thing about the festival was, as well as what their favorite thing about fall was, here were some of their answers:
