Sun 7/21 @ 10AM-2PM
Hale Farm & Village in Bath normally immerses visitors in the 19th century, recreating the buildings of a northeast Ohio pioneer settlement and offering demonstrations in crafts such as blacksmithing, weaving, glassblowing and candlemaking.
It’s getting a whole lot more modern this weekend with its Car Meet, a return of the summer car meeting held there in the 60s-80s, which attracted hundreds of participants to hang out and look under each other’s hoods.
The meet will include cars from the Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum, also part of Hale’s parent organization, the Western Reserve Historical Society, private collectors and car clubs, reaching all the way back to the 20s and including all eras of vintage cars. There will also be curator discussions on the Evolution of Mechanized Transportation.
And all the regular exhibits and demonstrations will be open for those who want to step back into an era when “traffic jam” meant two horses meeting at the crossroads. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for ages 3-12. Food, beer and wine will be available.
