Thumbing their noses at the autumn chill, the Sillars family of Langley strutted their finest summer beach attire. Rowan, 6, dad Doug, Grace, 8, mom Katherine and Abigail, 3, (not pictured) walked with their dog, Max, in search of a place to swim – and won a prize for their themed attire.

The day’s activities included Apple Day, hosted by Bayview Farm and Garden and the Bayview Farmers Market. Livy Barlow, Gabby Barlow, and Juliana Larson-Wickman, all of Clinton, tried their skills in an apple-stacking competition. Livy stacked a pile of seven apples before they tumbled.
