Living History Events – Sep 16 and 17, 2017

 Take a trip back to colonial times at the Hebron Colonial Day celebration. Hebron, a town just east of Hartford, was founded in 1708. A lot has changed since then, but on Saturday, September 16 from 10am to 4pm, you will have an opportunity to experience Connecticut life the way it used to be. Admission is free. Reenactors in period dress will give demonstrations on blacksmithing, furniture making, candle making, and more. Children are more than welcome to attend. The location for the event is Country Carpenters at 326 Gilead Street in Hebron. It sounds like a great time!

The Annual Tri-Town Vintage game will be played in Deep River, CT on Sunday, September 17, 2017 from 2:00 – 4:00pm. The event will be held at Devitt Field, 245 South Main St and is sponsored by the historical societies from Chester, Deep River and Essex. There will be 3 six inning games played following 1857 rules, back when pitchers were hurlers and no one wore baseball gloves. Take this opportunity to see vintage base ball being played as teams from each of the three towns compete at this fourth annual free event.
