As apples ripen on the trees and fall colors brighten the landscape, there’s no better way to spend a few hours on a fall weekend – for adults or children — than taking in one of the terrific Apple Cidering Demonstrations being held this weekend at the Morris County Park Commission’s Great Swamp Outdoor Education Center in Chatham Township. 

The Perfect Fall Event This Weekend in Morris County's Parks -- Apple Cidering At The Great Swamp

It’s a hands-on experience, as you help prepare and grind the apples by turning an old-fashioned cider press and collect the cider, and get a taste of a delicious sample of fresh, homemade sweet cider. 

Discover some surprising facts about those apples you take for granted — that the apple may not have been so American, and many more interesting facts.
