Good Night Farm @ Homeplace 1850s Working Farm and Agricultural Museum
Nov 27 @ 4:00 pm – 4:30 pm

We start our evening chores with the adorable Parade of Chickens, featuring our beloved Scissors the Hen. It’s a Homeplace Tradition! Then we say goodnight to the young whippersnappers on the farm, our pigs. Finally, you can help us herd our sheep to the front of the farm…well actually, they already know the way. It’s a sheep’s world, and we’re just living in it. Get up close and personal with the real stars of the farm, our ANIMALS!

Traveling with Light Planetarium Show @ Golden Pond Planetarium
Nov 28 @ 3:00 pm

Traveling with Light presents different scenarios that reveal the complexity of light and its direct influence on our planet. The Sun is the closest star to Earth and generates the energy that provides the light and heat necessary for life. Nevertheless, the Sun is not the only source of natural light. Fire has accompanied the Earth since its inception and has played a very important role in the evolution of the human being, so much so that its discovery by primitive societies changed their way of life.
