Great for kids, lots of interesting buildings and costumes for the kids to enjoy. General store was fun for buying some old-style candy. Enjoyed the maple syrup sampling.

Glad to hear you enjoyed your Westfield experience. Hope to see you again for some of our other events this season. If you visited with children you will want to attend our Ice Cream Carnival over the long weekend in August!
