First held in 1948, the Pilgrim Place Festival each year is known for a fun day for the entire family. But it’s also a great place to find unique items at the crafts fair. Those one of-a-kind items can be hard to locate, but this event was a great place to start! Other items included children’s games, collector’s items, sustainability games and of course, those train and ship rides for the kids. And for lunch, Pilgrim Place offered a free lunch with all the fixings from a Thanksgiving meal. Hats to the Pilgrim Place residents, who worked tirelessly to make this festival a memorable one.
