, PA — As autumn approaches, Millbrook Village comes alive with the sights, sounds and smells of country life in an earlier time.

John Donahue, superintendent of Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, invites the public to join the annual "Millbrook Days" folklife festival on Saturday, Sept. 16, and Sunday, Sept. 17. Costumed volunteers and park staff will demonstrate 19th-century trades, crafts, and home and garden chores. The festival also features old-time children’s games and live, traditional music. Food will be available for purchase.

"Millbrook Days" will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day, rain or shine. Admission is free. The festival is jointly sponsored by the National Park Service and the Millbrook Village Society.

Free parking and a shuttle service are available. The shuttle buses will travel from the Watergate, Turtle Beach and Silvie Meadow parking sites to Millbrook Village from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day of the event.

Millbrook is located 12 miles north of I-80 on Old Mine Road (Exit 1) in New Jersey. It's part of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. For more information call park headquarters at 570-426-245 or visit nps.gov/dewa.
