Heritage Apple Day falls on Saturday, Oct. 5

Free family-friendly events offers plenty to see and do from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Derby Reach park

A sure sign fall is here is the annual Heritage Apple Day in Derby Reach Regional Park.

This year, it is taking place on Saturday, Oct. 5 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Some of the apple trees, like the Wolf River apple tree, date back to the late 1850s, the era of the gold rush along the Fraser River.

This free event offers lots of family fun, with farm chores for the little ones, old-fashioned games for the older kids, and apple tasting, pruning demonstrations, historic orchard tours and interpreters telling tales of ghosts under the trees.

The Langley Community Music School fiddlers will be there to delight the crowd, while apple experts and arbourists will be there too.  Even the coffee and doughnuts are free, thanks to Tim Hortons.

Locally grown heritage apple trees and apple pies, either whole or by the slice, will be for sale too.
