Are you feeling down because you feel like you got cheated out of a long summer? Do you remember when it snowed in the Springfield area last May? Yes, that really happened.
It sure does seem like temperatures have been abnormally cool this past spring and summer. But, just because the people of southwest Missouri have had a pretty short-lived summer, there’s no reason to get upset about the transition into autumn.
Now, you may be thinking to yourself, “Why shouldn’t I be upset? My summer went by in a blur and I deserve more!”
I have an answer that will be satisfying to even the most bitter of all the summer-lovers out there. The reason why you should be welcoming the changing of the seasons is the fact that, with the arrival of autumn, comes the 2013 Cider Days event in downtown Springfield!
The 2013 Cider Days event is scheduled to take place from Saturday, September 21 at 10am until Sunday, September 22 at 5pm on historic Walnut Street in downtown Springfield. The two-day long event is presented to the public by Great Southern Bank and will feature local artists, craft-makers, three performance stages and plenty of family-friendly activities for people of all ages. Most importantly, of course, is going to be the opportunity to drink a whole bunch of delicious apple cider.
Several pictures of arts and crafts that have been sold at the event in past years can be found on the official 2013 Cider Days on Historic Walnut Street event page. If you like to decorate your home or office with autumn-themed arts and crafts, then you definitely won’t want to miss this event.
Tickets cost $4 a person and children under the age of ten get into the event for free. Tickets can be purchased by clicking here.

It’s time to dust off those flannel shirts and cowboy boots (if you’re into that kind of thing) and come on out to the 2013 Cider Days on Historic Walnut Street. Plus, I think we can all agree that the changing of the leaves from green to yellow, orange and red is a pretty cool gift that only Mother Nature can give us. Once you add cider and good times into the mix, you’ve basically achieved a state of nirvana. We hope to see you there!
