Apple Cider Pressing and Chili Cookoff
October 3 from 11 AM to 3 PM. This will be the second year for what was an extremely popular event hosted by the Ninemile Community Center Board at the Ninemile Community Center. One of the purposes of this event is to turn apples into cider and remove food attractants from bears. Last year a host of happy helpers chopped and pressed apples turning it into delicious cider that was taken home by the participants. We also did a fair amount of pears and even some grapes. This is a family friendly event that includes information tables and a variety of chilis to enjoy. This year an apple pie contest is planned that will provide some deserts for hungry participants. Remember to save your apples and bring them to this event to make some great juice and keep the bears out of trouble. Look to our website or facebook page for additional information about this not to be missed fun event in the Ninemile.
