Apples took center stage at the Carlos Creek Winery Saturday.

They were on trees, on sale, in wines, in pies and in cider.

It was the sixth annual Applefest – an outdoor family friendly festival celebrating the end of the apple harvest.

A wintry nip in the blustery air may have bit into attendance but a steady flow of people still made the most of the fun, free event.

Festivities included a catapult contest, pumpkin carving demonstrations, horse drawn wagon rides, pie eating contests, free cider and cookies, and outdoor games.

The Derelicts and Patchouli provided live music.

Fresh apples, wine, beer and food were on sale.

Luther Crest also held its 24th annual Quilts for Camp Extravaganza inside the winery’s barn, offering quilt viewing (one quilt from the 1890s carried a price tag of $1,500), a silent auction and artisan crafts.
