Watermelon Spitting and Sack Racing-What Fun!

This Saturday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm is Old Home Day at the Mt. Washington Auto Road! Admission is free you can play all sorts of old time fun games: Hopscotch, Jump Rope, Marbles, Jacks, Tiddlywinks, Badminton, Croquet and Graces. We will have old fashioned races and contests: stick and hoop, sack racing, watermelon seed spitting, pie-tasting and a huge dunk tank. The Glen View Cafe will be grilling up hamburgers and hotdogs, in addition to the other vendors selling fresh hot pretzels, kettle corn, snow cones and cotton candy. Ever been in a hot air balloon? I have, and it’s quite the experience. You will get a birds eye view of the whole festival and scope out what game you’d like to play next. We will also have horse drawn wagon rides that are always a blast!  Tethered balloon, wagon rides, dunk tank and food are available for a fee. Gather the family this weekend and meet us down in the field for some good old fashioned fun. -Meg
