Blast from the Past: Court & Market Days Festival @ Court Square

Court Square - Harrisonburg

Court Square – Harrisonburg

Have you ever wondered what it was like to live in mid 19th century America?   Well, you should rent Lincoln, I heard that movie is incredibly accurate.

But if you want to know what it was like to live here, right here in Downtown Harrisonburg during that time in American history, you should check out the epic Court & Market Days Festival this Saturday from 9am to 2pm at Court Square.   There will be food and crafts and snapshots of history scattered throughout our beloved downtown for all to enjoy.

Oh and did I mention there would be dancing?  And I don’t mean this “hips don’t lie” free-for-all we call dancing these days, no no, this is classic ballroom with synchronized toe tapping and hand holding.   It is recommended that you bring a healthy combination of chivalry and modesty with a dash of boogie fever.   Lady bonnets and beards are preferred.
