This year’s Apple Daze is set for Saturday, Oct 7 from 10:00am to 5:00pm, at Monument Park in Downtown Dexter. The annual fall celebration is hosted by Dexter Lion’s Club and offers a variety of activities for all ages.
Local merchants and area artisans gather together to display their craft for some great browsing. For lunch you can get your food in the park or saunter over to one of the downtown restaurants. Games and activities for the kids will burn off the sugar. Enjoy a hayride down to the famous Dexter Cider Mill.
Schedule of Events on the Stage:
10:00am Easy Listening DJ
11:00am Summer Rising Stars – area youth showcase their talents
12:00pm The Vibe – Dexter area youth fiddler ensemble gets your toe tapping
1:00pm Nucleus – live band performance
2:00pm Apple Pie Eating Contest – have your cameras ready
3:00pm Class Car Show Awards
Apple Daze is a great stop in the day without taking up the whole day or wearing down the kids. The long-range weather forecast is predicting sunny with a high of 75 – the perfect Fall day, and we know Michigan’s weather is never fickle.
So come on down. You’ll have plenty of time to enjoy Apple Daze, carve your jack-o-lanterns and settle in for the evening’s UofM v. MSU game while you enjoy your apple pie.
