FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) A crew from CBS Sunday Morning along with correspondent Mo Rocca taped a segment at Fort Wayne’s famed Johnny Appleseed Festival this weekend.

Rocca appeared Saturday morning at the festival which honors the life and legacy of John Chapman. The funnyman journalist filmed a report about Chapman.

He ate many apple treats, rode rides and took in some entertainment as we walked around the park.

In a tweet Tuesday, Rocca, who also hosts My Grandmother’s Ravioli on The Cooking Channel and Innovation Nation on CBS, called the popular festival his version of Burning Man and said he was “stoked” to visit.

The 43rd annual Johnny Appleseed Festival will run Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

CBS could not confirm when Rocca’s CBS Sunday Morning segment will air. A producer told NewsChannel 15 it would appear some time in the next couple of months, depending on schedules.
