moment to relax and listen to the harvest hymns in the Glen Alda Church. Play a game of apple tic–tac–toe on the
Village Green and make an apple craft. Don’t forget to visit with the lambs!
If you are feeling hungry, visit the Peterborough County Agricultural Heritage Building which will be selling chili and
buns to warm you from the inside out as you enjoy the fall weather in our outdoor courtyard. While in the Courtyard,
enjoy harvest dances performed by the Peterborough Scottish Country Dancers. Pick up some traditional fall fair fare
