Put us in a place with hot apple cider, doughnuts and a classic car show on a chilly fall day and we’ll be smiling ear to ear. On October 5, the Dexter Lions Club will be hosting their annual Apple Daze event that entertains families of all ages. Vendors line up with booths filled with treats, arts and crafts that children revel in as well as hayrides, pumpkin bowling, a bouncy house and face painting. The pie-eating contest attracts the hungriest visitors as their cheerleaders root them on from the sidelines. Prizes are waiting to be won for all the various activities and games. “It’s a family-fun festival and there’s something there for all ages,” says Jim Carson, the event chairman. Live entertainment will also be at the event and guests will enjoy the performances throughout the day.

Saturday, October 5. 10am-5pm. Admission is free. Monument Park, downtown Dexter. 8000 Ann Arbor St., Dexter. For more information, contact 734-502-4257
