The past few weekends I’ve been tucked away in the land of no cell phone signal and endless country roads at the Graves Mountain Apple Festival in Syria, VA. Visiting the festival is an annual tradition for my family, and each year I make a point to take in the mountain air, get ahold of some of the delicious fair food, like Apple Butter Donuts and fresh cooked Kettle Corn. There are hay rides, bluegrass performances, vendors, funnel cakes, and pick your own apples from the orchards nearby. It’s one of my favorite fall events, and I wouldn’t miss it for the world. These photos are just a little taste of the details you’ll experience once attending the festival. It makes me want to go back to the mountains already!
