Heritage Happens!

Our family recently attended the Newmarket Heritage Festival in Newmarket, NH. It was an amazing experience to connect with and learn from so many other cultures that were all represented at the festival. Among some of the cultures celebrated were Eastern European, French Canadian, Japanese, Chinese and African. Over 50 vendors represent multiple heritages and a variety of artisans and performers including a blacksmith, 18th century printer, Indian dancers, Taiko drummers, and an accordion player.

The kids learned about printing in the old days, the Art of Chinese Lettering, woodworking before there was electricity, weaving with a loom and the even got to walk an Ox!
