Two days of family-friendly, interactive and educational fun are planned for Historic Cold Spring Village’s “Hands-on History” Weekend, Saturday, Sept. 1 and Sunday, Sept. 2 from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Children will be given a “Pastport” at the start of their Village trip, which can be stamped at the buildings they visit after completing a take-home craft or activity, like writing with a quill pen, carding wool or making a pinch pot. Pastports can be redeemed at the Country Store for a free treat! Other family-friendly activities include games and live entertainment from traditional musician Mary Roth. Mike Kochan will give an electrifying portrayal of Benjamin Franklin in the Dennisville Inn. Visit with Bayman Dan and learn the ways of traditional net making. Crafts for children and adults made possible in part by a grant administered by the Cape May County Culture & Heritage Commission, from funds granted by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. This jam-packed family-fun weekend event is sponsored by PNC.
The Village is located on Route 9, three miles north of Victorian Cape May and a mile and a half west of the southern terminus of the Garden State Parkway. Admission during the season is $14 for adults and $12 for children ages 3 to 12. Children under 3 are admitted free. Unlimited free admission is available with Village membership.
