This is just a quick post to say–EVERYONE! Market Fair is this weekend! Saturday and Sunday from 10-4:30, come one, come all to the seat of Major William Croghan to partake in period-appropriate victuals and entertainment, watch the Illinois Regiment demonstrate their military prowess, shop for goods and sundries, and so much more! Today was Market Fair School Day, and it was a great success, so you know the rest of the weekend will be even more fun! The full schedule of events can be found here. Admission is $8 for adults, $4 for children. I’ll be running around the grounds all day Saturday and part of Sunday, so look for me and say hello! I’d love to see you and talk about the dairy! Because that’s right–the dairy is furnished! Find pictures of it and the set-up for the weekend below to whet your appetite until you journey down Blankenbaker Lane to the encampment!
It’s going to be another busy, beautiful weekend! Come join us!
