GREENWICH, Conn. -- In celebration of the town’s 375th anniversary, this year’s Fall Festival hosted by the Greenwich Historical Society will focus on early Greenwich history.
The event will take place Sunday from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Bush-Holley Historic Site in Cos Cob.
Re-enactors 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 non-members, 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.
