Eating good in Maeystown

You've noticed that your appetite has increased lately — you just can't seem to eat enough! — and you're not sure why. Maybe it's because the change in weather has meant you're wearing less form-fitting clothes and more jackets, maybe you just like fall foods better, or perhaps there's something to the idea of fattening up for the winter. Whatever the case may be, you just know you want to chow down more — and now! So where to go? Head over to Maeystown, Illinois (eight miles southwest of Waterloo on Lakeview Drive), for the annual Oktoberfest celebration. This day of antiques, crafts and, most important, food (including turtle soup, kettle corn, potato pancakes, caramel apples and so much more) runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and admission is free.
