The Brandywine Harvest Market will run from September 20th through November 9th, most weekends. Come out to enjoy things from honey and apples to pottery and handcrafted jewelry, regional artisans showcase their crafts in the Brandywine River Museum’s courtyard. Handwoven rugs, dried flowers and wreaths, pottery, quilted items and handcrafted dolls are featured on a rotating basis. Contact the Brandywine River Museum to find out which crafts are available each week, Brandywinemuseum.org.
Mark your calendars, next weekend take a ride on the West Chester Railroad Haunted Train as the friendly (and only slightly ghoulish) crew gives out treats (and some tricks) to each of the passengers. Everyone is encouraged to dress up in Halloween costumes. It’s not too scary for the little ones; it’s Halloween fun while enjoying the Chester Creek autumn scenery from the comfort of a heated train which departs at 12pm & 2pm.
Also, don’t forget about the Fall Foliage Express ride taking place this Sunday, October 13th. Enjoy a brisk fall afternoon along the Chester Creek Valley as the West Chester Railroad takes you on a 90-minute journey to the village of Glen Mills and back. For more information on both events visit West Chester Railroad website, www.westchesterrr.net.
