Apple cider is the quintessential fall drink, and hard cider? Even better. Lakewood Cider Days covers all the bases, with family-friendly fall activities like tractor rides, a vintage car show and an apple pie eating contest. Your little ones can even press their own cider. But when the adults need a break from kid stuff, they can retreat to the tasting area, where they can sample fifty ciders from producers around the country. The festival kicks off on Saturday, October 7 at the Lakewood's Heritage Center, 801 South Yarrow Street, and runs for two days from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are $28 at lakewood.org, and just $6 if you're a teetotaler (or a kid).
