Historic Harvest Festival 

When: Sat., Oct. 9 2010

Back in the mid-1800s, when your supermarket didn't offer fresh produce from around the world year-round, or even Spaghetti-Os, harvest time loomed even larger than it does in this era of long-distance shipping and long-term preservation. So the Harvest Festival at Hale Farm & Village (2686 Oak Hill Rd., Bath) — which re-creates Ohio life in that era, with costumed historical interpreters and craftspeople spinning wool, weaving baskets, dipping candles, and blowing glass — takes on a unique aura compared to other such festivals. Its haywagon rides, pumpkin carving and painting, and apple-butter making take place in the setting of a reconstructed village and working farm of 150 years ago, which spotlights how hard-won the bounty of that era was. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and tomorrow. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for ages 3 to 12. Go to wrhs.org or call 800-589-9703 to learn more. — Pantsios
