HHV Hands-On Heritage Crafts
Spring festival offers opportunity for modern folk to get Colonial. Visitors to Van Cortlandt Manor on April 28 and 29 can try their hands at more than a dozen colonial-era tasks.
The gardens, grounds, and buildings of this living history museum will be bustling with activity as visitors are encouraged to learn about the traditional activities of the 18th century in an interactive way. Each activity is presented by guides wearing clothing of the period. The event takes place from 10am to 5pm. Call (914) 271-8981 or visit website at www.hudsonvalley.org.
