Fall Harvest Family Days at Mount Vernon Estate is the place to be this autumn. The entire family can enjoy activities such as horse-drawn wagon rides, wheat treading, 18th century dancing, apple-roasting, crafting, and more! During Fall Harvest Family Days, children can experience the excitement of romping through-and getting lost in-one of the biggest corn mazes in Virginia. They can also create and take home their own cornhusk dolls. Visitors will enjoy live performances by musicians and watch a real life farrier (blacksmith) demonstration. Not only is Harvest Days fun, it’s also educational with thought-provoking tours and historical events for the whole family. So what are you waiting for? Join the Mount Vernon staff in bidding farewell to farming season with a traditional harvest celebration like no other. Oh, and we almost forgot to mention that Potomac River sightseeing cruises are half-price this weekend ONLY.
