Storytelling & Bonfire at Warwick County Park




Storytelling & Bonfire 
at Warwick County Park
 
Friday October 12th
6 - 9 pm


Miss Maggie, a children’s performer who combines singing, guitar, percussion, poems and stories to entertain and teach children of all ages, will be on stage from 6:30 - 7:30pm.

From 8:00 - 9:00pm, Richard Pawling’s History Alive will share professional, historically accurate local iron making and canal stories. In the 18th and 19th centuries, the forests within Warwick Park provided much of the raw timber used to make charcoal for the region’s iron furnaces and forges. Remains of the iron industry can still be seen in the park at the various charcoal hearths and old cart paths.

The Friends of Warwick Park will have a concession stand and offer hayrides through the park.
