Families flocked to the Jay Heritage Center for bales of fun on September 24. There they were greeted by a very tall and welcoming woman and treated to banjo music, a dance performance, and a fencing demonstration. Youngsters paused awhile at the petting zoo, watched paper artistry, and learned about the glories of the garden.
And in between face painting and pot decorating and sampling the fine fare offered at food trucks, many were just content to sit on the steps of the Jay Mansion and enjoy the view of the meadow and beyond on the first Sunday of fall.
