October is a good month for fresh apple cider. Bring your own apples to be pressed at Vancouver, Washington’s, annual Old Apple Tree Festival, celebrating what is believed to be one of the first apple trees planted in Washington, adjacent to Fort Vancouver. History says an officer in Britain’s Royal Navy, attending a formal dinner on the eve of his departure to the rugged Pacific Northwest, circa 1826, was given some apple seeds left over from the fruit dessert. Dropping them in his dinner jacket pocket, a female admirer instructed, “Plant these when you reach your Northwest wilderness.” The old tree, surrounded now by a busy highway interchange, is celebrated every October with a day of music, cider pressing, apple tastings, tree-pruning workshops and more. 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, free.
