If you’re local, or near-local, to Ithaca, this is perhaps the best weekend of the year around these parts, so get out and enjoy yourself. The Ithaca Apple Harvest Festival, Craft Show and Sale starts today and runs through Sunday on the Commons. At the least, go pick up a peck of local apples and bake some pies this weekend. Then, on Saturday, get over to the opening day of the fall Friends of the Library Book Sale, the 3rd largest used book sale in the country. The prices drop each day, so remember to go back next week, and for closing day on the 20th when you can get books for $1 a bag. With the beautiful fall weather finally here, but the snow still holding off, it’s going to be a great weekend to go out and enjoy the town. I can’t wait!
