HARRISBURG, Ore. -- Fall is in the air and for one farm in Harrisburg, that means it's time for apple picking, hay rides and more.

Detering Orchards in Harrisburg held their annual Apple Daze celebration Saturday with more than ten different types of apples to pick.

Activities also included free hay rides, pumpkin picking and apple cider tasting.

Owner, Stephen Demergasso said he hopes everyone who attended embraced the season.

"I want people to feel like they're part of the fall," Demergasso said. "We've entered fall and they experienced fall at our farm. They'll come home with some pumpkins, squash and cider. We press our own cider here. They'll get the family out. The kids can do the corn maze and hay mazes. They can go on a wagon ride and kind of feel that farm environment, farm atmosphere."

If you missed the festival Saturday, it's happening again Sunday.

It will also continue every weekend in October.
