    Fort Hunter Day ushers in fall with a free celebration of the old-time way of life. Sponsored by M&T Bank, visitors will find arts and crafts, children’s games and activities, historic demonstrations and exhibits, entertainment, a bake sale, festival food and more.

    View a butterfly habitat, visit with the PA Honey Queen, see old farm implements and learn about antique clock repair.  Learn about native foods – pawpaws, persimmons, hickory and shagbark hickory nuts and sassafras. Visit Heckton Church for entertainment throughout the day:  Jim Thorne playing Americana music from 2 – 4p.m. View antique tractors, a 1947 Mac fire engine and an antique hammermill from private collections.

    Throughout the day enjoy musical entertainment on the corncrib stage in partnership with the Susquehanna Folk Music Society.
