Wade House celebrates autumn

Revel in the traditions of the fall season during Wade House's "Autumn Celebration" on Saturdays, October 7 and 14 and Sundays, October 8 and 15 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Guests will learn about the traditional harvest season in Wisconsin. The event includes a variety of family friendly activities including turnip and pumpkin carving, apple cider tasting, open-air horse-drawn wagon rides and more.

The experience will begin outside on the Wade House lawn, where visitors will get to carve a turnip into a traditional Irish jack-o-lantern, or a pumpkin into the better-known North American lantern (while supplies last).

Guests will also get a chance to dip candles and watch as Wade House staff dye wool shorn from Wade House sheep using dye from the site's flower garden. Inside the 1850 Wade House stagecoach hotel, visitors will enjoy a taste of warm apple cider in the hotel's 19th century summer kitchen.

In the blacksmith shop, guests will have the opportunity to play snap apple, a traditional Halloween game. Snap apple participants will try to take a bite of an apple as it dangles in front of them.

"Autumn Celebration" will take place at the Wade House Historic Site in Greenbush, WI. Visitors will begin the special experience at the new Wade House Visitor Center and Wesley W. Jung Carriage Museum located at W7965 State Highway 23.
