Last year we went to Greenfield Village's Ragtime Street Fair and the kids LOVED it! The live orchestra playing ragtime music, the costumed dancers, and the parade of musicians and actors in old fashioned attire that led everyone to the front of the park at the end of the day is still a fond memory for them. So we couldn't miss it this year!
This year had an added bonus of bringing Eric's mom along to give her a birthday gift. There is a glass crafting building where you can watch people make glass flowers, horses, etc, and for a reasonable fee you can learn to make one yourself. Every time we go, Eric says "my mom would love that, we should do that for her" and we finally did. She did enjoy it, and it was fun to watch her make it and then see the finished product later.
We can't wait for next year's Ragtime Street Fair!
