GABRIELS - The 17th annual celebration of Brighton History Days will be held Saturday and Sunday, July 31 and Aug. 1, from 1 to 5 p.m. at Tucker Farms' big historic barn, located at 112 Hobart Road. This is also opening weekend for the Tucker Farms Corn Maze at the same location.
Brighton History Days are free and open to all. The Corn maze is $6 for children ages 4-12, $8 for adults, and free for children younger than four.
Both Saturday and Sunday, there will be history and family exhibits about the Tucker Farm and the barn, which was restored through a grant from the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation. Wagon tours of the farm will be offered and food will be available for sale to benefit the Paul Smiths-Gabriels Volunteer Fire Department.
As always, families and individuals are invited to bring pictures, information and artifacts about their own family or Brighton town history. If anyone has pictures or stories they wish to share, contact Mary Ellen Salls at 327-3509, or Pat and Tom Willis at 327-3433.
