There will be basket-making and interactive info on everyday colonial life with NJ History Alive. Activities include trying on 18th-century-style clothing and playing games like battledore & shuttlecock and cup-and-ball; experiencing common activities like washing clothes and hanging them to dry; and making crafts such as paper tricorn hats, epaulettes (shoulder decorations for an officer) and marbled paper. The kitchen garden will be available for perusing and the barn will be open to house some of the activities (especially if it rains). You can visit the Museum Store with its many interesting wares and trinkets for sale and there will be light refreshments available. No registration is required. The event is held rain or shine, though some activities may be curtailed if it rains.
