Wednesday, Aug. 30

  • Slacklining runs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the lawn area. Weeeeee!
  • I scream, you scream, we all scream for the ice cream truck next to the windmill from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Free ice cream for the first 100 people!
  • Head across the street to the Regional Farmers Market (yes, we have one) from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. for the Fresh Food Face-Off,┬áhosted by the Cornell Cooperative Extension.
