2009 Heartland Apple Festival this Weekend and Next at Beasley’s Orchard in Danville

Every year Beasley’s Orchard & Gardens presents the Heartland Apple Festival, a greater Indianapolis event that draws fans all during the first two weekends in October. Beasley’s Orchard is in Danville, Central Indiana, a suburb which is located a scant twelve miles west of Indianapolis, just off the old U.S. 36 highway.This year, the dates are October 3, 4, 10 and 11, so there’s still plenty of time to take the clan out to the apple orchard, enjoy the fragrant county air and be scared silly by the Haunted Maize Maze.

The popular Haunted Corn Maze is running concurrently with the Heartland Apple Festival, every Friday and Saturday from 8 pm to 10:30 pm throughout the month of October. This is one of the many greater metropolitan Indianapolis charities, whose proceeds go to Project ANGEL (Area Neighbors Give Extra Love). For information on this charity call 317.745.4876.

Along with the fun stuff above, the 2009 Heartland Apple Festival at Beasley’s Orchard in Danville, Indiana offers some great food and drink, Ken’s Balloon Magic, all-day every day entertainment by Danville and Indianapolis children‘s well-liked Sugar Buzz, and hayrides out to the orchard’s pumpkin patch.

Hayrides are only $2 per person, and kids under three ride free with their significant adult in tow. A big draw to the Heartland Apple Festival in Danville is the pumpkin patch, where you can pick out farm-fresh pumpkins grown just for you and take them home for from $2 to $25.

Admission at the gate is only $5 per vehicle, and a percentage of those profits go to local charities.

Come early. Stay late. Buy some pies and pumpkins. Go home tired and happy.
