COSHOCTON -- Roscoe Village promises to be historical, educational, and fun for 2013!
Beginning April 2, Roscoe will offer a new tour -- Floods, Fire and Famine to celebrate 100 years of the 1913 flood. Home School Days is offered April 22 and April 23 where they invite you to bring your school to "our school." Activities include the Canal Town Journey Tour, hands-on activities, a ride on a horse-drawn canal boat and a visit to the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum. If you can't make the April Home School Days, it is offered again on Sept. 16 and 17. Roscoe Village offers special Home School Day's pricing for this event.
What would October in Coshocton County be without the annual Apple Butter Stirrin' Festival? Bring the entire family, because there's something for everyone … educational demonstrations, contests, children's activities, musical entertainment, raffles, lots of great food and so much more! The candlelit Spirit of Roscoe tour will be offered Friday and Saturday evenings during the Apple Butter Stirrin' Festival, and the new Floods, Fire and Famine tour will be offered as a self-guided tour Friday, Saturday and Sunday throughout the day.
To wrap up 2013, the first Christmas Candlelighting of the season will be hosted by the Roscoe Village Foundation on Dec. 7. Beginning at 11 a.m., there will be Art with Santa, strolling carolers, Christmas crafts at the Visitor Center, and free hot mulled cider and cookies for everyone!
