Connecticut’s fair season has come to a close with the Southington Apple Harvest Festival.

The festival, which has been going on for the last two weeks wrapped up on Sunday Oct. 13. 

Fairgoers could shop at the various booths both outside or inside the buildings, watch performers or wait in line for the coveted apple fritters. The booths featured Connecticut vendors and many displayed jewelry, holiday decorations or baked goods.

The Southington Fire Department was also in attendance. They let young children see the inside of one of their firetrucks and gave out tips on fire prevention and safety.

The Southington Arts and Crafts Association invited festival goers to take a look inside their pottery studio located downstairs.

There were also many carnival rides like a carousel, a Ferris wheel and a small roller coaster. The kids, and those young at heart, enjoyed these rides.

So long Apple Harvest Festival, see you next Autumn.
