ConnecticutPlus.com News - Harvest Festival Weekend at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center to Feature 5th CT Regiment Colonial Militia Re-enactors
Saturday, October 15, and Sunday, October 16, from 11 am to 3 pm each day, the SM&NC’s Harvest Festival is chock-full of activities and events for members and visitors of all ages to enjoy. Watch farm-animal demonstrations on Heckscher Farm, see how apple cider is made, take part in an apple slingshot contest, children’s crafts, story-telling with Ms. Karen, and dance to live music from the ever-popular Jay and Ray.
The 5th Connecticut Regiment's appearance at the SM&NC's Harvest Festival is sponsored by the Stamford Downtown Special Services District. Founded in 1775 and re-formed in 1974, the 5th Connecticut Regiment is made up of people interested in the country's history and teaching others through living history. It was formed as a family group, encouraging women and children to participate as well, which gives the Regiment the ability to teach about other aspects of colonial life beyond the military.
