Fall Festival: A Revolutionary Concept

Sunday, October 11, 2015

In celebration of the town’s 375th Anniversary, this year’s Fall Festival will focus on early Greenwich history. Reenactors from the Fifth Connecticut Regiment will demonstrate camp life at the time of the American Revolution and march, fire muskets and display uniforms, flags, crafts and weapons from the period.
Visitors may take a hayride along historic Strickland Road; enjoy a family-friendly tour of Bush-Holley House linked to the Fifth Connecticut Regiment; visit the exhibition Greenwich Choices and try their hands at Colonial-inspired crafts. They may also compete in the annual scarecrow-making competition. Registration fee for the competition (in addition to entrance fee) is $10 for members and $15 for nonmembers and includes armature (“the bones”), hay for stuffing, twine and a burlap sack for the head. Bring your own clothing and “accessories” to customize your creation.
