Residents of New Homes in Montgomery County Enjoy Family-Friendly Fall Events

Categories: Foxtail Farm, Things to do in Montgomery County | Posted: October 14, 2019

As the warm summer months give way to the brisk breezes of fall, residents of Montgomery County Foxtail Farm in North Wales, PA are invited to participate in a host of exciting community events. By mid-October, Montgomery county shifts into fall celebration mode, as local family-friendly affairs fill up the calendar marking the onset of the fall festival season.

 

Attendees of all ages are encouraged to participate in Halloween crafts, locally cultivated cuisine, Medieval celebrations, haunted railways and a kid-themed parade. This well-rounded array of gatherings promotes wholesome interaction between families in the region while giving folks that are new to the area a chance to explore the community at large.

 

Have Some Old-fashioned Fun

Pennypacker Mills has been celebrating fall since the estate’s namesake — Samuel W. Pennypacker — was Governor of Pennsylvania over 100 years ago. Operated by the Montgomery County Division of Parks, Trails & Historic Sites, this local treasure represents rural life in a bygone era when new homes in Montgomery Countywere few and far between.

 

The property stretches across 170 acres of pastoral farmland overlooked by the historically-preserved family mansion. On October 19th, this layout will set the scene for a lively afternoon of corn shucking, hay pile jumping, tractor pull rides across scenic meadows, bean bag tossing and pressing of fresh apple cider to quench your hearty fun-inspired thirst. Festivities will begin around 1:00 PM and will include pumpkin painting and other fall-themed arts and crafts activities.

 

Sample the Local Fare

For the first of many years to come, residents can immerse their taste buds in locally produced cuisine and libations while benefiting a local charity focused on supporting disabled children and young adults. This initiative strives to enrich the lives of young people facing unique challenges by nurturing self-confidence and independence through vocational, social and educational programs.

 

The inaugural Food Truck and Beer Festival is on Saturday, October 26th. Food trucks will be offering regional favorites such as roasted corn, artisan ice cream, grilled cheese sandwiches, slow-cooked BBQ and Italian subs and who knows — you just might pick up a few ideas for christening the kitchen in your new home in Montgomery County.

 

Adults can sample craft beers from McAllister Brewing, Brothers Kershner Brewing Co. and Round guys Brewing as well as small batch mead from the Haymaker Meadery. Kids are encouraged to dress up in costume and participate in Halloween mask painting, pumpkin painting and can burn off some energy in the Moon Bounce inflatable play structure. Meanwhile, adults can enjoy live music from the Pennise Family Band and danceable selections from DJ Chris Evans.

 

Travel Back in Time

Customs of the Middle Ages are kept alive for people of all ages to experience during the Medieval Festival at the Glencairn Museum. Historically curious visitors can learn about the art, music, crafts, weaponry and other burgeoning technologies of early American settlers and their European predecessors. Festivities will commence on Sunday, October 27th at 1:00 PM and extend through the early evening.

 

Attendees can look forward to stepping through a portal to the past to witness first hand demonstrations of live vocal performances and music on replica instruments, stained glass painting, manuscript illumination, glass blowing, weaponry and a Gutenberg-style printing press. A special tour of the museum known as the Pilgrimage Quest will be available to teach you all about the religious sites of Medieval Europe, or you can explore on your own and even try your hand at medieval crafts and possibly create a period-specific decoration for your new home in Montgomery County.

 

The museum galleries on all floors will be open to exploration via staircase and elevators will be available for floors one and five. Visitors can take the museum’s narrated cell phone audio tour and catch a limited run of the seasonally and regionally appropriate exhibition entitled Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars.

 

Ride the Spooky Rails

The Colebrookdale Railroad specializes in helping residents get acquainted with the region at night during the fall Halloween season. You can embark on a haunted, deep woods adventure by railcar through the woods, valleys and hollows of the region. The trip includes the opportunity to select the pumpkin of your choice, if you dare to leave the train, to decorate as a memento of your journey that you can proudly display on the porch of your new home in Montgomery County.

 

If that adventure excites you, you can ramp up the risk factor by signing up for a trip on the Zombie Hunter Train (kids 12 and older). The last two Tuesdays in October (the 22nd and 29th) will feature special evening railway excursions with limited capacity that will venture into undead-infested territory to blast away at evil, but beware — some may blast back. This Colebrookdale Railroad event is co-sponsored by Laser Quest, so the weapons at hand will be first rate.

 

Join the Kids’ Parade

On the morning of October 19th, all young folks in Montgomery County and beyond are invited to participate in the Skippack Children’s Halloween Parade. The event commences at 10:00 AM at Trinity Christian United Church of Christ, Skippack PA with kid-friendly snacks and refreshments. The procession will follow a route that winds it way throughout the seasonally decorated village. Participants can look forward to gathering treats from participating merchants while showing off their Halloween costumes.

 

The final stop will be at Floral and Hardy of Skippack and will feature more candy treats and a subsequent event that will last into the afternoon. The Floral and Hardy Family Day encourages parade participants to stay and enjoy festivities from 10:30 AM until 12:30 PM including a free concert for kids, face painting, root beer floats and pumpkin painting.

 

The fall season is a special time in Montgomery County with plenty of Halloween-themed events for new residents. Contact usto learn more about Hallmark Homes Group’s premier new home community, Foxtail Farm just off Route 309 in Montgomery County, PA.
