Travel back in time to the 18th century and discover just how different life was three centuries ago when you join Cleveland Metroparks on September 28 to celebrate FallFest. Activities run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Brecksville Reservation.
The free FallFest event is a feast for the senses. Follow the smell of wood smoke and the sound of a blacksmith's hammer to Meadows Picnic Area where children play with pioneer toys, �colonists� in period costumes hand out samples of their fresh-pressed cider, and guests learn how to hand-dip wax candles.
The 1700s will be brought to life by the Brigade of the American Revolution, whose demonstrations show how some of the colonists dressed and fought.
Local contra dance band Mud in Yer Eye will perform, as well as a �colonial magician,� and children will be able to make a pot of posies to take home. Family-friendly FallFest also features pony rides, refreshments and souvenirs for sale.
For more information, visit clevelandmetroparks.com or call 440-526-1012.
Meadows Picnic Area is located off Meadows Drive in Brecksville Reservation, off Chippewa Creek Drive near Route 82 in Brecksville.
