When you think of fall, apples often come to mind. On Saturday, Oct. 14, make those thoughts part of a fun family activity at the Sycamore History Museum when it hosts its annual fall festival.

Starting at 1 p.m., visitors can step back into the past and make apple cider with Bill Mitchell. They will clean the apples, grind and press the apples using an old apple press.

“This is a great family activity, and then you get to enjoy the fruits of your labor with the freshest apple cider around,” Michelle Donahoe, museum executive director, said in a news release.

This is a free event for families; donations are welcome. Apples will be supplied by Jonamac Apple Orchard in Malta.

The Sycamore History Museum is located at 1730 N. Main St. While the event is free, regular admission fees to the museum apply – $5 for adults and free for children and members.
