Even though the weather has been typical West Texas crazy, spring is definitely here. That means it's time to get out today for the Apple Blossom Celebration at Hi-Plains Orchards in Idalou.

Every spring, Hi-Plains Apple Orchards has an event they call The Apple Blossom Celebration.

For a $5 donation, they'll serve up apple pancakes, coffee and fresh apple cider, with the proceeds benefiting the local Lubbock Meals On Wheels Organization.

Take a hay ride through 6,000 blooming apple trees and enjoy the fact that winter is on its way out.

What a great way to spend a Saturday here on the South Plains.

It happens today from 9 a.m-5 p.m. at Hi-Plains Orchards in Idalou.
