The Homeplace 1850s Working Farm will rekindle the old traditions and stories of the past during Snap Apple Night Saturday, October 13, 6-8:30 pm at Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area. Doors open at 5:30pm. Admission is $7 for ages 13 and up, $5 for ages 5-12, and free for ages 4 and under with their family.
Enjoy an evening at the Homeplace in the 1850s, where the nights were very dark and the only light came from candles. Family entertainment was sitting around the fire, listening to stories of long ago. Recapture that magical atmosphere as award-winning storyteller Brian 'Fox' Ellis shares stories around a blazing campfire. Between stories, get a cup of hot cider or play a fortune telling game to learn what the new year will bring.
“Snap Apple Night is a fun way to learn and experience the traditions of the early Pryor Creek Scots-Irish settlers,” said Cindy Earls, Lead Homeplace Interpreter. “It’s a great way for families to get outdoors and celebrate the fall season.”
Participants should dress appropriately for a brisk fall evening and are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets. The event will take place rain or shine. For more information, call 931-232-6457 or www.landbetweenthelakes.us. This program is ideal for home educators.

7:30 pm - Second storytelling session - even scarier stories
