Harvest & Heritage Days
October 10 - 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
October 11 - 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Historic Honesdale rolls out the pumpkins, hay bales, cornstalks, fall colors, and SCARECROWS, for its annual "Harvest & Heritage Days", Saturday, October 10 and Sunday, October 11, sponsored this year by The Dime Bank with support from Wayne County Tourism.
There will be lots to do this fun, fall weekend. Shoppers will want to explore the greater Honesdale area, which offers lots of wonderful shops, eateries, and fine services.
Craft vendors will line Main Street on both days and you are invited to delight in the many creative scarecrows that our merchants have made to represent their business. Visitors can find the location of each scarecrow in the October 13 and 14 editions of The Wayne Independent, available at newsstands everywhere, or beginning October 7 on local radio stations 95 -3 DNH and Classic Hits 105.
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.
Railroad buffs can enjoy railroad exhibits at the Wayne County Historical Society Museum on Main Street. The newly expanded and renovated Historical Society museum also offers many other exhibits and is open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, and from noon to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday.
The train will also be running on both days with trips to Hawley and Lackawaxen! For more information on schedules and ticket prices, please go to www.thestourbridgeline.net, call 570-470-2697, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. All aboard!
