Johnny Appleseed Festival

One of the biggest events in Fort Wayne every year is the Johnny Appleseed Festival. Yes, Johnny Appleseed was an historic person, and was from Fort Wayne. The festival consists of a farmer's market, crafts, homemade foods, and antiques. Kristina and I went to the farmer's market first:
