River celebration to ramble on this weekend

September 20, 2013 by  

Jay Day is a fun, family fall festival that features storytelling, music, children’s activities, and food and beverage sampling – all as part of the 2013 Hudson River Ramble.

As part of this festive event, guests are invited to take a step back in time to the Revolutionary War to explore the heritage of America. By visiting John Jay and his family’s historic home, guests will enjoy a number of interactive activities.

An action-packed day, it will include children’s activities including pony rides, crafts, balloon animals, face painting, and games. There will also be live music by the Hudson River Ramblers. Jonathan Kruk will appear as John Jay and entertain the audience with his enthusiastic storytelling. During the event, the farmers’ market will provide shopping opportunities for locally-grown produce, and there will be cheese and cider sampling available for everyone. Tours of the site will be provided by people dressed in period costumes.

The cost is $30 per family or $10 per individual. The Jay Day Fall Family Festival, which is more than likely to see the area bedecked with signs made by local banner printing companies, will be occurring on Sunday, September 22, from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm at the Jay Heritage Center – 1838 Peter Augustus Jay House located at 210 Boston Post Road in Rye, New York, just a short drive from North Arlington.
