Thanksgiving Harvest Home & Armistice Observance Day
Cost: $6/adult, $5/senior (65+), $4/child (ages 4 to 16), and $2/child (ages 2 and 3)
Description: Step back in time and celebrate Thanksgiving and Armistice Day in 1918. Begin by following the enticing aromas to The Willows and Farmhouse kitchens where a Thanksgiving feast is being prepared. While the harvest has been gathered, there is still much to do on the farm. Help husk corn, saw the wood that is needed for winter heating and cooking, and make animal food with the one-cylinder gasoline engine operation. Be sure to take a horse-drawn wagon ride around the farm, watch a side-saddle riding demonstration, visit the farm animals, and assist with egg collection. The Armistice, or cease fire that officially stopped the carnage of WWI, went into effect in Europe on November 11, 1918, at 11 a.m. Over the years, Armistice Day, later named Veterans Day, has honored the men and women who served in the U.S. armed forces. On this day before Veterans Day, gather outside The Willows, the Foster family home, at 2 p.m. for a special tribute to veterans.
