The Sycamore History Museum will celebrate fall on Saturday, at Family Fun Day. Everyone is invited to enjoy the best parts of fall: homemade apple cider, fall crafts and tours of the museum’s exhibit “PLAY,” which includes many Pumpkin Festival artifacts.
This is the fifth year the Sycamore History Museum has held a Fall Festival. During the afternoon, volunteer Bill Mitchell will teach visitors how to make apple cider using an old-fashioned apple cider press. Traditionally, this is one of the highlights for the afternoon. Mitchell also is known for being very creative and coming up with a variety of crafts children can take home. Tours of the museum’s exhibit will be led by the Junior Docents, who will share the history of Pumpkin Fest along with the stories connected to some of the new additions to the exhibit – artifacts connected to Sycamore High School sports, Girl and Boy Scout collections and toys that were recently donated.
The festival will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. Cost is $5 per family. The Sycamore History Museum is located at 1730 N. Main St. For more information, call 815-895-5762 or visit www.sycamorehistory.org.
