Our trip to "1863 Thanksgiving Holiday" at Old Bethpage Village Restoration...

What a great time!!  If you didn't make it today, it is still on tomorrow and next weekend.  From 10-3.  $10 for adults, $7 for kids 5-12, and kids under 5 are free. You can bring strollers but it will be a little bumpy and dusty.  And it is cold out in the field and town so dress warm!!

Our first stop was of course to get our Root Beer and Pretzel Rods from the Saloon.  Then to the General Store for some Peppermint Sticks:)

Then we went to check out what the villagers were cooking for dinner.  In one home they were making the side dishes, another the pies, and the other some soup and a turkey.

It was a great day!!

There are many other houses to visit along the way.  Everyone is very knowledgeable and are open to all questions.

My son's favorite was the Hat Maker.  I have no idea why but he didn't want to leave there.

My daughter loved the farm.  They have cows, giant pigs, roosters, sheep and chickens.

Here are some pictures from our day and here is the link to my blog post about this event:
