Fall Festival at Chippewa Falls orchard benefits the Alzheimer's Association

CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) -- The leaves haven't changed color yet, but families got a head start on celebrating the fall season this weekend.

Autumn Harvest Winery and Orchard in Chippewa Falls hosted day two of its annual Fall Festival Sunday.

People enjoyed apple picking, wine tasting, wagon rides, and a free corn maze.

Proceeds from apple picking and tasting room sales from Saturday and Sunday will be donated to a local charity.

"It's a great event for people to come out and listen to live music, we have some big bands here this year and every year we give the proceeds to some kind of cause, this year is the Alzheimer's Association," said co-owner Jean McIlguham.

Autumn Harvest Winery and Orchard will be open six days a week until October 31 and will feature live music on Saturdays.
