Oneida, Wis. (WFRV) - Saturday, the Oneida Nation celebrated it's historic heritage in fun fall fashion.
It was during the Big Apple fest, held at the Oneida Cultural Center and the Oneida Apple Orchard.
Organizers say the Oneida Nation is originally from New York and Big Apple Fest is a way for the nation to celebrate it's heritage.
Fest-goers were able to enjoy several animal acts, pony and horse drawn wagon rides, games, and of course apple picking and apple cider.
There was also an apple pie contest.
"It's just pure family fun," marketing and tourism director Michelle Danforth says, "so it's get rid of the cell phone, get rid of all the games, and it's about stepping back in time in the old time period clothing, and just enjoying being with your friends and family."
Big Apple Fest was free to the public and is sponsored by the Oneida Tourism Department
