Baldwinsville It will be hard to claim boredom this Saturday in Baldwinsville as there are numerous activities taking place throughout the community.
Children will love learning about the farming community while partaking in Lysander Parks and Recreation Department’s Farm Fest, which features four Lysander farms that the public are welcome to visit and learn more about. The event is held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Abbott Farms, Bella Via Farms, Smoke Tree Farms and Stillwater Farms.
History buffs can test their skills during the Museum at the Shacksboro Schoolhouse’s History Trail, which is an element of Lysander’s Farm Fest. Held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., it will be an historical scavenger hunt through the village. An exhibit featuring Baldwinsville's Specialty Heritage Farming, Peonies and Tobacco, will also be on display.
