– October 3, 2012 8:18 am
MANASSAS, Va. – The leaves have started to change and the evening air has a slight chill. It is time to officially say welcome to fall.
The whole family is invited to celebrate the 30th Annual Fall Jubilee in historic Old Town Manassas this weekend, Saturday, October 6 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.. This popular community event has been going strong since 1982.
The jubilee has something to offer everyone in the family. There will be live entertainment on three stages for the young and old. A blue grass stage is a new addition this year.
Also new this year, is a wine garden where adults 21 years or older can partake in wine tastings from eight Virginia wineries on the Manassas Museum lawn. The entrance bracelet is $10 and will get you in all day. Museum tours will be free this day.
In addition, Main Street will be lined with over a hundred crafters and artisans to explore. The Farmer’s Market will also be present under the Harris Pavilion where you can buy fresh produce from local farmers.
There will be a variety of children’s rides and activities as well in the Kid’s Neighborhood sponsored by Northwest Federal Credit Union. Rides will require tickets for a fee. Games will also be provided by the Boy Scouts Troop #670. A pumpkin patch sponsored by Wegman’s grocery store will also be set up for families to paint a pumpkin to take home. Cost is $5 per pumpkin or $10 for three pumpkins.
Live chainsaw art demonstrations by the Chainsaw Chix will entertain the crowds. These women will create unique wooden sculptures that will be auctioned off later during the event.
Also on hand, will be the Prince William SPCA’s P.A.W. Express showcasing pets from the Prince William County Animal Shelter.
The Fall Jubilee is free to the public and is scheduled rain or shine.
