Storybook Hayride

One of the best things about living in this area is getting to visit Applecrest Farm every October for their annual Storybook Hayrides.

First - it's a fundraiser for the local high school's drama trip. Gotta love a unique fundraiser.

Little Red Riding Hood's Granny puts you on the hayride and asks you to keep an eye out for her favorite nightgown - it wasn't on the clothesline this morning. And - off you go. Local High School drama students then give a skit at every stop. Then - you receive a treat from each one. You meet Humpty Dumpty, Alice and the Mad Hatter, Dorothy and the Scarecrow, Peter Pan and Captain Hook as well as others.

Humpty Dumpty - trying to sit on the wall. Fortunately, he does succeed. Unfortunately - he takes both hands off the wall at the same time. Poor Humpty - he falls backwards. He then asks for crazy glue and some tape - very funny.

It is so much fun. This was our seventh year supporting this event. So - if you are in the Hampton Falls, NH area swing by the farm, go on a storybook hayride then you can pick apples or pumpkins or just queue up for some cider donuts or chowder.

There is even a build your own scarecrow station.

Tons of fun for the whole family!

Oh, Beth! It looks like a wonderful place to take your kids for some outdoor fun! I notice everyone is wearing coats though. Would you believe here it's still HOT?

Gotta love supporting the young ones with their fundraisers also!

Ooooo! How fun! I think this is pretty close to me so I'll have to remember this for next year. It sounds like fun and helps out the high school kids at the same time. Great!
