Hey there, it’s Jac!
You don’t need a time machine to experience days of yesteryear; simply attend this year’s old-fashioned Country Fair, on Sept. 10, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., at the Sands-Willets House in Port Washington. Sponsored by the Cow Neck Peninsula Historical Society, the fair is back for its 51st year.
Revolutionary War reenactors, potters, wool spinners and more give this fair an authentic historic feel, while you walk along the grounds of the Sands-Willets House, which has been around since 1735. As you browse books, jewelry and antiques, you’ll hear the sounds of The Quatrain Barbershop Quartet and the Front Porch Players. And, don’t forget to check out the antique Model T 1924 Ford on display.
There’s tons of fun activities for kids, too, like a petting zoo, old-time colonial games and pony rides.
Who doesn’t love local Long Island treats? Check out the awesome options like Lucy’s homemade fruit pies and apple butter, as well as the Dodge Homestead’s honey.
Tours of the historic Sands-Willets House will be also given throughout the day.
History doesn’t have to be boring, so take your family to enjoy it this weekend. And if you go, have fun, readers!
