Walk in the morning ... dance at night!!! Join us on Saturday, April 19th, at 10:30am, for our Annual Spring Stroll through the orchard. If you've never seen an apple orchard in bloom you don't know what you're missing! We can never be sure, but we are hoping the orchard will be in full bloom by then! Restrooms will be open, and water and soda will be available for purchase. The stroll is free but donations to the Altapass Foundation will be accepted. Then come back that evening for a free benefit concert featuring the Little Roy & Lizzie Show! Doors open at 5:45pm, and the concert starts at 6:30pm. Donations to the Altapass Foundation will be graciously accepted.

SEASON OPENING: We will re-open for the 2014 season on Saturday, May 3.
