LIVE: Wassail Festival at Cottonwood Cider House

We're wassailing -- er, wrestling -- with a wassail question.

We’re wrestling with a question about wassailing on the Morning Show this Monday.

Why, when most of us have only heard about wassailing from Christmas carols, are some people having a wassail festival this weekend?

The answer is that it’s a lot better to wassail outside in North Dakota in August than in December.

The wassail, a celebration of the harvest, gets started Saturday at the Cottonwood Cider House in Ayr, N.D.

There will be live music, a scavenger hunt and games, a stein-holding competition, local food, and of course, lots of hard cider.

The event is family- and pet-friendly.

Cottonwood Cidery’s Stacy Heising took time out from the last-minute preps for the Wassail Festival to sit down for a live in-studio interview to teach Emily Welker a little about some of their most popular ciders, and let us know what to expect this weekend.
