Harvest Days Tabloid Cover   



Historic Honesdale’s


Come out and enjoy Historic Honesdale’s annual event, Harvest and Heritage Days, on Saturday, October 6 and Sunday, October 7 (sponsored by The Dime Bank and Wayne Memorial Hospital).

 Be immersed in autumn activities for the whole family. Take time to see all the historic buildings and various architecture that our historic town boasts.

So much is planned for this fun fall weekend. There are games and activities for the children in Central Park from 11-3, plus pumpkin painting on Main Street. Explore the greater Honesdale area, which offers wonderful shops, eateries, and fine services. Honesdale’s Main Street is eight blocks long with something to interest you on every block!  

Craft vendors will line Main Street on both days. Old-fashioned hayrides will be offered downtown, for a small fee, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and from noon to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday. In the parking lot of Scarfalloto’s Town House Diner, watch as Chainsaw Carver Larry Wildenstein creates works of art out of a simple log. Blacksmith Paul Janusz will also be showcasing his craft.

 The Wayne County Historical Society Museum on Main Street is open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, and from noon to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday. There are many interesting things to learn about Wayne County and our rich history!

Plan on taking a train ride at either 10 AM or 1 PM. The train will be running on both days with trips to Hawley and beyond! For more information on schedules and ticket prices, please go to www.thestourbridgeline.net, call 570-470-2697, or email info@thestourbridgeline.net. All aboard!

We invite you to visit the Wayne County Farmers' Market on Saturday, October 6, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. where you will find fresh produce, flowers, plants, herbs, and many more locally grown and handmade items. The market is in front of Dave’s Super Duper at 200 Willow Ave. (Rte. 6).

Stop by the Fred Miller Pavilion (on Main Street) on Saturday and Sunday to listen to DJ Tom Emanski from 11-4.

The magical land portrayed at The Stourbridge Lion Model Railroad Club's wonderful HO train layout is something you will not want to miss. It’s a wonderful place to take your children, grandchildren or friends to see this intricate display taking you back to simpler times. It can be found in Grace Episcopal Church, 827 Church Street and is open Saturday only from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

And for the kids, there will be pumpkin painting on Saturday near The Honesdale National Bank's Corporate Center on Main Street. Pumpkin painting will be available on Saturday, from noon to 4:00 p.m., sponsored by the Wayne County YMCA.

And you’ll want to make the time for a tour of our historic Old Stone Jail. The jail is located next to the Wayne County Court House on Court Street by our beautiful Central Park and will be open on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Stop by the GHP tent in front of the Park ‘N Shop lot near the pavilion to take a chance to win! There will be a 50/50 raffle with chances being sold for just $1.00 each!

Saturday evening will feature an antique car cruise around Honesdale's beautiful Central Park, sponsored by the Greater Honesdale Partnership from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. More than 75 antique cars are expected to cruise into town for your enjoyment. Starting at 5:00 p.m., there will be music from the fifties and sixties, which is bound to bring back some great memories.
