10:00AM-04:00PM: Historic Children’s Games
Vermont History Center Lawn, 60 Washington St, Barre
The young (and young at heart) will enjoy playing games that have been enjoyed by generations of Vermonters. Try walking on stilts (there will be expert instructors!), hopscotch, checkers, beanbags, cup and ball, or graces. These games, presented on the lawn of the Vermont History Center, are based upon descriptions found in the 1888 diary of Clara Doty of Tinmouth, Vermont.
