Lakeside School at Black Kettle Farm is hosting its fifth annual Fall Festival and Open House in Essex on Saturday, November 7th from 1:00 – 4:00 pm. This free outreach event is a friend-raiser designed to gather North Country families together to celebrate the season.
Many area farmers and artists will be in attendance. Reber Rock Farm is selling their local, organic products as well as yogurt and cheese from North Country Creamery and canned goods made down at the Whallonsburg Grange from Dak & Dill. Russ Bailey will be staying warm doing a blacksmithing demonstration. Becky and Jason Hance will be giving pony rides. Michael Croghan will be playing guitar and doing a sing along for kids of all ages!
In addition to the vendors and entertainment, there will also be kids games, face painting, cider pressing, snacks and a bonfire. New this year there will be the Trading Post — a wide selection of gently used kids clothing and outdoor gear available for sale.
“Everyone is welcome,” said Stites McDaniel, Lakeside parent and school board president. “Even though our school has been here for 8 years, there are still many local families who either don’t know we’re up here, or aren’t sure what we’re all about. This is a great chance to come meet our teachers, peek inside Lakeside School, take a walk on the beautiful CATS trails around Black Kettle Farm, or just share a fun afternoon together.”
Black Kettle Farm is at the corner of Cook and Leaning Road in Essex. The fall festival is from 1-4pm, Saturday, November 7th. For more information call 962-7385, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website at www.lakesideschoolinessex.org.
Lakeside School’s Fall Festival is made possible in part by the Essex County Arts Council Cultural Assistance Program Grant supported by the Essex County Board of Supervisors.
