When not checking out the vendors’ booths, tour one of the grandest heritage mansions in the Valley, take the little ones to the kids’ area, ask firefighters to spray from a fire hose and enjoy food and ice cream.

Tours of the sumptuous Manor House, built by the Scottish laird James Dun-Waters in the 1920s, are $5. Gates to the grounds open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dogs on-leash are welcome. Entry is by donation and free for kids and society members.
