The Apple Harvest Festival is on!


Come out and have fun with all things apple this weekend from pressing apples to playing bingo to dancing! The Point Roberts Apple Harvest Festival will take place on Saturday and Sunday, October 8 and 9.

One of the weekend’s two big events – one Circle of Care’s primary fundraisers – is an afternoon of old-fashioned bingo games happening on Sunday, October 9 at 2:30 p.m. at Kiniski’s Reef. There will be both prizes and cash prizes so put on your wackiest Bingo outfit and bring along the whole family.

Sunday evening, also at the Reef, there will be a classic rock concert and dance party featuring Shaune Ann Feuz’s band, “The Point” with Savilla Kress, Krispian Emert, Casey Carmody and Alex Hamilton. These local musicians are great and will put on a terrific show for your listening and dancing pleasure. Dust off your dancing shoes, tease your hair and get out the hairspray.The concert will play from 6:30 p.m. until closing and ticket prices are $25 or two for $40. There will be door-prizes and a 50/50 game. Don’t miss this party. The Reef’s bar and kitchen will be open for refreshments and dining.

Even though this year’s apple harvest has been sparse, Circle of Care’s Apple Harvest Festival will provide hours of fun and activities for the whole family. On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll pull out the beautiful and very efficient electric apple press to turn your apples into delicious apple cider. Bring the kids and work together to create fun family memories and some of the best apple juice you’ll ever taste. If you have your own apples, great! If you don’t, contact Circle of Care to be connected with a homeowner with apple trees that need to be picked/gleaned. Other events scheduled in conjunction with the Apple Harvest Festival include the following:

George Wright will answer all your questions about apples, growing them, what effects them on Saturday, October 8 at 3 p.m. at the community center.

Gorgeous Border Cruisers will be on display at our Classic Car Show to help you get in the mood for Sunday’s classic rock concert.

Growing Dahlias and More will take place on Saturday, October 8, from 1 – 2 p.m. in the Point Roberts Library meeting room. Come meet Catherine Stewart from Clover Blossom Farm. Learn about growing dahlias in Point Roberts and how to have a cutting garden full of colorful blooms. There will be a Q&A at the end, so bring your questions about flower farming. Enter to have a chance to win a flower bouquet or a dahlia tuber for your garden.

Even if you’re unable to attend the weekend’s activities, we hope to have your support in our mission to provide care and services to residents as they age or recover from illness or surgery so that they can stay here, safely, in their homes and community.
