  • Had an awesome day! Horse drawn carriage ride, rode the 1894 carousel, they even had a live pianist accompanying silent movies at the ice cream parlor. Recommend visiting the side near the Trafton house first so you get a chance to see the live events before 3 (they were finishing up around 3:30). Something for everyone, we arrived at 12:30 and had to hurry to catch everything by 5! Only improvement would be more clearly labeling how all the equipment worked, some items looked very interesting, but if you didn't know what you were looking at you were out of luck. Highly recommend.
