Threshing demonstration at Fall on The Farm

Fall on the Farm is the last summer event at the Mennonite Heritage Village Museum.  

Executive Director Barry Dyck says its a typical sort of festival for them as they offer a lot of Pioneer demonstrations including threshing which is key at this time of year.  He says there will be many activities for children including a petting zoo, where children have opportunity to play with the animals.  There will also be face painting, rides and much more.

Dycks says one of the main highlights of the event is the authentic Mennonite food, which is prepared on-site and is always popular.

Many of the volunteers dress in traditional Pioneer clothing to depict how it actually was hndreds of years ago.

Dyck says the many volunteers and staff that help organize this event do a wonderful job of engaging the public and give a real sense of what it was like during those times.
