"Lights .... Camera .... APPLES" is the theme of this years Southington Apple Harvest Festival. It starts this weekend on Friday October 1st, 2010 at 5pm!  

We LOVE the Southington Apple Harvest Festival.  This annual family friendly eventspans the first 2 weekends in October.  It's time to get ready for 6 days of fun, food, live entertainment, crafts and so much more! 

This very special community event couldn't take place without the generous support of local organizations, businesses and volunteers - which makes Southington a wonderful community to visit and even better place to live.
