Terhune Orchards is using its Apple Days Harvest Festival to honor the military when officials invite military members and families as guests to the annual event from Sept. 21-22 in Princeton.

Terhune Orchards Apple Days Harvest Festivals, which runs through Oct. 27, will be packed with apples and family friendly activities, according to officials.

This weekend festival, for both weeks, will be from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Live music will be provided by local bands; Growing Old Disgracefully on Sept. 21 and Stone Hearth on Sept. 22.

Officials said those who attend will be able to taste fresh pressed apple cider and homemade apple cider donuts; take a ride on a tractor-pulled wagon and ride around the preserved farmland.

Terhune Orchards produces more than 30 varieties of apples during the season, which include red, green and yellow apples. For this weekend mazes have been created with hay bales and corn maze, and there will be a pick-your-own pumpkin patch available as well.

Children will have a chance to experience pony rides, scavenger hunts, pumpkin picking and painting, rubber duck races and face painting. The barnyard will also be open for the children to visit the animals.

Pam’s Food Tent will be open both days and will include hot dogs, BBQ chicken, pulled pork sandwiches, vegetarian chili and homemade soups. Along with those food options, apple cider donuts, apple pies, and apple muffins will also be available.
