King Manor Museum, located inside King Park on 153rd Street and Jamaica Ave, will simulate a bygone era of antiquated tools and ways of living that don’t exist in the world we live in today.

Their annual Fall Festival takes place Oct. 17, 2015 from Noon to 4 p.m., where children will have a firsthand experience of how the early settlers of the United States lived. A myriad of activities will be performed such as churning butter by hand, creating apple cider and fall inspired crafts, watching open hearth cooking and tasting historic meals that were prevalent during that era.

The Fall Festival program is supported, partly in funds, by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs as well as by Council Members James F. Gennaro and Leroy G. Comrie, and the New York State Council on the Arts with support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
