No weapons permitted.   No alcohol or coolers allowed.

With one step you leave behind all that you have known and with the next step you enter a world where Myth and Legend are Reality. Fall leaves waft through the chill Autumn air. The scent of spices, pies and roasting meat tempts your appetite while you slake your thirst with apple cider. Dress in your finest garb and dance the night away at the Masquerade Ball.  Festivities begin Saturday morn at 10 am and do not end until the last note from the music at the Masquerade Ball.  The Festival resumes Sunday morning at 10 am and concludes at 5 pm.  Free to all that shall enter our Magical Realm.
