DDW Pic 416. Epcot Cranberry Bog
Epcot Cranberry Bog
While giving a tour of Epcot a few weeks back, I caught this "scene" out of the corner of my eye and couldn't believe what I was seeing. There was an actual cranberry bog set up right in the middle of the walkway between Future World and the World Showcase. Of course we had to approach the area and chat with the man who was thigh deep in a huge pool of cranberries. While standing there in his waders, he described for us how cranberries are harvested in a real bog. This, of course, was part of the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival and not a permanent addition to the park. It was sponsored by Ocean Spray and they were handing out free "Craisins" in a booth nearby.
