The Freeway Estates Community Orchard (FECO) is hosting their third annual cider press, which features an old-fashioned cider press (aka kid magnet), apple bobbing and a scavenger hunt. Head on over to FECO between 2 pm and 5 pm on Saturday to meet neighbors and partake of the apple harvest.
If Saturday’s event whets your appetite for cider making, you are in luck! On Sunday, City Fruit will be hosting a cider press along the Burke Gilman trail, featuring apples harvested from the neighborhood trees that City Fruit volunteers tend. You can also bring your own apples and a bottle, and press some cider to take home. From noon until 3 pm, the City Fruit crew will be on the Burke Gilman trail west of I-5. The closest cross street is 4th Ave NE (near Dunn Lumber).
