Market Day is expanding to State Street and will include non-profit organizations and local businesses. There are over 85 crafters, demonstrators and artists offering a wide variety of interesting crafts. Demonstrations will include: carpentry, blacksmithing, quilting, dressmaking, and gunsmithing.

In the historic Boone Garden, across from the Half Moon Inn, the Penn’s Wood Puppeteers will perform “Captain Crook and the Missing Treasure” at 11:00am, 1:00pm and 3:00pm. Colonial candle dipping, a children’s participation event, will begin at noon in the Boone Garden. Scarecrow-making for children, will be held inside the Half Moon Inn from 10:30am to 3:30pm.
