Taiko in the Orchard [SIV46] 

On a blustery Saturday afternoon, Burlington Taiko celebratedtheir 20 year anniversary with high-speed drumming, group dancing and a funky parade atShelburne Orchards.  Just try to keep your foot from tapping!

Shelburne Orchards is an 80 acre family farm where you can enjoy applepicking (macintosh are ripe at the moment), hot cider donuts (you get to eat them straight out of the fryer), fresh apple pie (made by the "Pie Lady," Moriah, whose father Nick Cowles owns the orchards), a kid-covered hay maze, and breathtaking views ofLake Champlain. 

Nothing says Autumn in Vermont like a trip to the orchards, an earful of Taiko, a tummy full of apples and a carload full of orchard booty.

Did the rhythm of the drumming help ripen the apples?  Time will tell.
