Homestead Fair

Instead of shopping on Black Friday, we chose to visit Homestead Fair.  

Homestead Heritage hosts a three day fair every Thanksgiving weekend. It’s a great way to be introduced to the variety of heirloom skills they teach. There were craft demonstrations, agricultural exhibits, children's activities, barn raising, music, outdoor food, an auction. The food was wonderful. We had a great time and already look forward to next year's fair.
