This Saturday, November 9th the Clermont Historical Society will host the third annual Heritage Day Festival at the Clermont Historic Village, 490 West Avenue in Clermont. The Festival will run from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm and will feature a wide range of activities for young and old alike. Thanks to a generous donation from Toyota of Clermont, the October Mountain Washtub Band will be performing this year. If you have never heard a washtub bank before, you are in for a real treat! The band will perform at 11:30 am and again at 2:00 pm. And may have a surprise or two in store for the audience. Judy Jackson, a Clermont resident, will provide additional musical entertainment on the hammered dulcimer in the Kern House’s Music Room.
In addition to musical performances, there will be craft demonstrations, hands-on opportunities, freshly churned butter, homemade ice cream, children’s games, refreshments available for purchase at a very reasonable price, and more. All the buildings in the Village will be open for tours and costumed Historical Society members will be on hand to assist you in any way they can.
Admission to the Festival is free but a $3.00 donation per person is requested. Come and bring the entire family for a chance to walk down memory lane and you may even get to see your children play hopscotch, jump rope and do all sorts of fun physical activities that do not involve a computer screen!
Once again, the Festival runs from 10:00-4:00 pm on Saturday, November 9th at the Clermont Historic Village which is located at 490 West Avenue on the shores of Lake Minneola, not far from the downtown shopping district.
