Harvest time at Harrison Mills

Quilt show and HarvestFest usher in autumn in Harrison Mills

This weekend it’s time to celebrate the autumn at Kilby Historic Site. HarvestFest runs Saturday and Sunday, and visitors can sample festivities of a 1920s country fair.

Site admission is free for the weekend.

When done visiting the site, warm up with soothing thoughts of cozy blankets, at the annual Harrison Mills Quilt Show. The event runs Oct. 13 and 14 at the Harrison Mills Community Hall.

Later this month, the Harry Potter Halloween party is back at Kilby, Oct. 27 and 28.

Check out the wares in Diagon Alley, take a potions class and dress as your favourite wizard.
