Kids complaining of being bored? Winter blues got 'em down? Change the pace of things, open their eyes to days gone past, and they'll undoubtedly come to appreciate all their modern day conveniences a bit more. The 21st annual Hancock Shaker Village Winter Weekend happens Feb. 16-18 offering a great variety of hands-on activities for the entire family. Care for animals in the barns, hop on a sleigh ride, cook up some comfort food in the kitchen, and harvest the ice using genuine Shaker tools. Activities are spread throughout the day, the Village Cafe open for hearty winter soups and sandwiches, and the Village store will offer some sensational winter weekend specials.

Call 413-443-0188/800-817-1137 or email info@hancockshakervillage.org for more information.
