We saw signs all week advertising Hale Farm and Village’s Fall Festival. Mark rolled his eyes while mine lit up. He doesn’t do crowds.
I convinced Mark that if we got there right when the festival opened, we could avoid the crowds.
It totally worked out and was totally worth it. We got to be the first carriage ride of the day, watch a spectacular glass blowing demonstration, see how corn is husked and turned into meal, visit many farm animals, and see many other demonstrations by volunteers in period costumes.
We all had a wonderful time, even Mark. It’s not to be missed if you visit the park. Hale Farm and Village is open year-round with many seasonal events, like haunted tours at Halloween and candlelight tours at Christmas.
Here are some pictures from our morning at Hale Farm.
