Stop by the Children's Area for all-day activities geared toward our youngest Applebutter Fest visitors. In recent years, we've had jugglers, ventriloquists, puppeteers, costumed storytellers, and clowns, who make balloon animals, paint faces, and apply temporary hair color. Seating is provided (chairs, benches, and/or straw bales).
