New this year, members of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church have partnered with members of the Skaneateles United Methodist Church to bake a delectable variety of homemade pies. Apple, cherry, raspberry, peach, blueberry, elderberry, strawberry and strawberry-rhubarb pies will all be available. Members of both churches will be staffing the baked goods area during the show—located just inside the entrance of the pavilion. There is no charge to access this area, and pies will be available to purchase whole or by the slice. Cookies and other homemade treats will also be available.
Other features of the show:
Catherine Sankey, a certified appraiser, will be on hand to do appraisals from
10am – 3pm each day for a nominal fee ($3 for one item, or $5 for two items). This is a great way to find out what those old heirlooms are worth!
Doug’s Fish Fry will be providing a varied menu of their food at the event. Plenty of seating will be available under the shaded cover of a large tent.
The Historical Society of Early American Decoration/Special Designs will be offering a variety of demonstrations both days.
