MAYFIELD — The Mayfield Historical Society announces its Fall Family Fest and Cruise-In on Saturday, Oct. 12th, from noon to 4 p.m. at The Rice Homestead, 328 Riceville Road, under the beautiful Sugar Maple trees on the property.

Owners of antique and hot rod vehicles are invited to attend. Admission is free and the first 50 commitments will receive a dash plaque commemorating the event.

The gate will open at 11:30 for car set-up.

The Fall Family Fest will include tours of the homestead, weaving and spinning demonstrations, face painting for the kids, produce and pumpkins for sale from Brower’s Farm, apple cider, cider donuts, and hot dogs with the locally iconic “Lee’s Famous Hot Dog Sauce” will be for sale.

The descendants of Lee Goulet, owner of Lee’s Snack Bar in the village of Mayfield, donated Lee’s secret meat recipe to the Mayfield Historical Society as well as its snack bar signs which will be on display. The DVD “Harnessing Nature: Building the Great Sacandaga” will be available for sale.

In case of rain, the event will be cancelled.
