Baskinta Apple Festival

The Baskinta Apple Festival was organised for the first time to support the local apple crises and bring life to the village of Baskinta after the summer ended, the first Baskinta Apple Festival took place on the 14th and 15th of October in the heart of the village involving producers from Metn and the Bekaa.

We joined AUB on their Green Exercise adventure. The day started with a 3 hour hike for a 6km route. The pictures below do not do it justice. After the long and beautiful hike, tiered kids and tiered legs we enjoyed  an apple picking experience where kids learned the technique used to pick apples and also got interviewed on national TV part of the festival.

We ended the day with yummy food by Souk El Akel, where there was a program of entertainment and something for everyone to enjoy.
