Fall Country Fair!

Sands-Willets House

Check out the Fair!!!

We stepped back in time at the Cow Neck Peninsula Historical Society’s old-fashioned Country Fair, featuring loads of activities for both children and adults. Kids enjoyed the petting zoopony rides, old-time Colonial games, and story-time under the trees. Adults checked out the the antique dolls, the crafts, Lucy’s fabulous homemade fruit pies & apple butter, our own Dodge Homestead local honeybooksjewelry, and antiques

Everyone enjoyed the Revolutionary War reenactors, country barn treasures, pottery and wool spinning demonstrations, and the live entertainment with performances by The Quatrain Barbershop Quartet and our own Front Porch Players. Tours of the historic Sands-Willets House were given throughout the day. 

I hope we saw you at the Fair!!!
