MULLICA HILL — Wood smoke and canon fire with the crunch of fallen leaves always says its fall.
The best way to celebrate the fall season is a trip to Mullica Hill. And the best time is the Fall Festival Weekend. Oct. 14 and 15 with activities starting at 10 a.m. both days. Bringing you family fun and entertainment, Farm House Design hosts the event and packs the weekend full of activities for the whole family.
Jonathan the Juggler, live music, games, photo spots, a bounce house and kids spots can be found throughout town. Flossys Boutique will have games, face painting at their kids stop.
Pumpkin painting and bounce house can be found at Farm House Design as well as their biggest harvest party to celebrate 23 years in Mullica Hill.
You can also find live music and refreshments, yard games and entertainment. Many shops will host open house events like refreshments, music and photo spots.
Two craft courtyards will have a variety of crafters and treats like wood working, crocheted items, pottery and soaps. Food vendors will be on the street or visit one of Mullica Hill’s great restaurants like Blueplate or Mademoiselle Macaron.
A living history program is still here, with Saturday’s battle at 2 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m. There will be camp displays and drills all day.
The camps are open to the public and visitors are encouraged to ask questions or even interview the soldiers. Many reenactors have a personal interest, with ancestors who fought in the Civil War. Camps are located behind The Dressing Room on Main and Church Street.
There is plenty of parking in town, on the street, at Friend’s School on High Street and other locations.
Fall Festival has been a tradition for many years, and has brought the community together, celebrating our downtown and continues to teach history for future generations.
And don’t miss the 4th Annual Ghastly Tales Tour. You’ll hear stories about the town’s history, medical practices, and even an amputation. Simulated of course.
One hundred percent of the proceeds are donated to education. A 45 minute walking tour takes you through town, both camps, a cemetery and leaves you in camp to hear horrible tales and first hand experiences.
Tickets are available in shops or online at ticketleap.com. Shops selling tickets are Cherry on Top, Time Fine Men’s Store, Dsigned for You, Annie’s Cranny, Serendipity and Farm House Design. Tours start at 6:45 p.m. and are Saturday night only.
