"Look at it, how could you not come here," said Donna March, who traveled to the fest from Saratoga Springs, New York.

It's what fall lovers from all over look forward to.

"We love the homemade pies, the homemade brews, local people. We're just really sharing everything that's cool about us," said Dorey Chandler, a Duluth native at the fest.

For some, it's a tradition.

"I mark it on my calendar," said March.

"I've been going since I was a baby. My family's been going for well over 30 years," said Chandler.

For others, it's a new experience.

"It's interesting seeing all of the homemade stuff, " said Hailey Smith, who was at the Apple Fest with her family.

But the biggest draw, of course, is the apples.

"We got a bunch of Cortlands. They are delicious," said Chandler.

If you thought there was a limit to the things you could make with apples...guess again. 

Everything from apple chili, to brats even apple dumplings were on the menu. And, no matter what age or where you're from, the fest has it's own meaning for everyone.

The Apple Fest goes on through Sunday in Bayfield.
