A trip to Upper Canada Village will take you back to a simpler time. A full-scale recreation of an 1860s village, the site offers daily programs including tradesmen demonstrations of forging iron and crafting furniture, the spinning of wool in a log cabin, horse-drawn wagon rides, and costumed interpreters covering the grounds. Check out the Fall Fair Weekend (Sept. 15 and 16) for a recreation of an 1860s fall fair, complete with musical and magic shows, livestock, seasonal vegetables and flowers, and fine art displays. Or stop by the World of Glass Weekend (Sept. 22 and 23), which showcases restored stained glass window pieces and offers special presentations with experts. From Oct. 5 to 31, the village presents “Pumpkinfernno,” a spellbinding outdoor exhibit that showcases thousands of creative, intricate, hand-carved pumpkins.
