Cranberry Festival Returns This Weekend
October might be all about the pumpkin for most, but if you are a cranberry lover this weekend's festival in Nantucket will be perfect for you.
The 15th Annual Nantucket Cranberry Festival returns to the Milestone Cranberry Bog this Saturday October 6th.
From 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. the bog will be transformed into the festival grounds where cran fans can watch harvesting demonstrations, learn the history of cranberry farming and of course sample cranberry treats and fresh-pressed juices.
There will also be family activities providing plenty of fun for the kids, like hay rides, sack races and face painting.
And food will be on hand like delicious clam chowder, pulled pork sandwiches, hot dogs, BBQ chicken and more.
Plus this year the event is going organic, so organic cranberries will be for sale, organic farming methods will be used to harvest them and only organic cranberries will be used in all the baked goods.
The fun takes place on Saturday October 6th from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. and though admission to the event itself is free, there is a $20 fee for parking at the bog.
You can get directions to and more information on the event anytime at the Nantucket Conservation Foundation's website.
