LORDSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A little rain didn’t stop people from attending the annual Lordstown Apple Cider Festival on Sunday.
The weekend-long event was held at Lordstown High School. It celebrated the beginning of fall and featured craft shows, amusement rides and entertainment.
The Lordstown Fire Department was out in full force cooking up chicken and pulled pork, while the Lordstown Lions Club was also out making freshly squeezed apple cider from a machine that’s over 80-years-old.
Gary Luzadder, president of the Lions Club, explained how the machine works.
“We feed the apples up the conveyor belt,” he said. “And then it goes through a masher down into a process like applesauce. Then we squish it with a press and then it comes up into our jugs.”
