1. Gettysburg Fireman's Carnival. Details here on Gettysburg Family.
2. The kids and I went to the Gettysburg Train Station Museum.
There was no admission fee to the train station museum. Not so much for kids as grown-ups. Perhaps your older child would enjoy the train station models. However, this visit led to two other discoveries.
3. The train station people were kind enough to give us all of the information about The Gettysburg Festival. The festival is a celebration of various arts and is going on now. It's official dates are June 19-29, 2008. So much stuff: music, art, films, plays. My husband and I have a date for a film on Friday night. A date with no kids. Our second in the last year. Lots of events are free. Others have various admission fees.
4. When we told a friend that the train station museum wasn't quite what we thought it would be, she recommended I take the kids to the Lincoln Train Museum. This attraction offers complimentary admission to those of us sporting a local Gettysburg address. It offered many, many model trains. This would be good for any kids who are train nuts. My kids liked the model that was running on elevated tracks high above us. They also enjoyed the display that activated three different trains with the push of a button or three. If you didn't know, most kids like to push buttons.
Now, get off the computer and go do something. Don't be offended, I was talking to myself. Thanks for stopping by Gettysburg Family.
