Mendo Lake Family Life

Sip Some Cider

If eating apples really does keep the doctor away, then the Mendocino County Apple Show may be a ticket to good health. Apple samples will be available at the show. And there will be hard cider and wine tastings, too. The show is part of the Mendocino County Fair. So if apples and their derivatives don’t appeal, there will be more entertainment to choose from, including a CCPRA rodeo, a wool and fiber arts show, live music, and a dance. The fair and apple show will be held September 13–15. Fair gates will be open 9 a.m.–midnight. Admission is $6–$10 or free for ages six and younger. (On September 13, ages 12 and younger get in free.) Unlimited carnival rides are $25–$30. Tastings are an extra fee. A cider tasting is planned for September 14, 1–5 p.m., and a cider and wine tasting for September 15, noon–4 p.m. Wine-only tastings are slated for September 13, 5–8 p.m., and September 14, 5–9 p.m. For details, see
