Attend Fall Festival Living History Day at Grand Caverns

If you caught a past blog of ours, then you may have learned a bit about the famous Grand Caverns of Grottoes, Virginia. But a tour of the caverns isn’t the only excitement you can experience at this historic location. Coming up on October 3, 2015, you’ll have the chance to experience Fall Festival Living History Day. Whether you’re a history enthusiast or just a casual observer of the past, you won’t want to miss this event!

Here are a few details about what you can expect to find and enjoy at this year’s festival:

  1. Artifact Identification: Bring you arrowheads, stone tools, and other historic artifacts, and let the Massanutten Chapter of the Virginia Archeological Society help you identify their past.
  2. Re-enactment Groups: “Re-enactment groups from different time periods will be demonstrating the daily life of a Civil War, WWII, and Vietnam Era Soldier throughout the day.”
  3. Vehicle Displays: Observe an array of military, classic, and antique vehicles.
  4. A Ballroom Dance: Held inside the Ballroom of Grand Caverns, you’ll have the opportunity to end the festival with an authentic ball from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. (It’s not required, but if you feel so inclined, feel free to wear period attire!)

Don’t forget to book your room at a Shenandoah Valley B&B to complete your Living History experience. We look forward to seeing you!
