Family Day concludes with a free, 3 p.m. performance of "The Colonial Faire" by Kit's Interactive Theatre.
"The Colonial Faire" depicts the arduous life of early America as well as the revelry. Though days of rest and merriment are few, today is the day of the Colonial Faire.
With the excitement of the faire on everyone's mind, village folk eagerly apply themselves to their work in order to enjoy the day. Beginning with a list of chores already performed, servant Katie Cotswold invites the assistance of those around her to gather the dye for the wool, prepare the wool to be dyed (including carding) and make deliveries.
On her travels she encounters various townsfolk including French trapper Jean Claude Guillaume, tavern-keep Mistress Reinhardt and the Barnaby boys. Finally, she is off to the village square to partake in the Faire.
A variety of colonial games are played by the folks from the village and the day concludes with a rollicking and colorful Maypole dance.
