Paddy - looks like you can have a pretty hoppin' Labor Day weekend in the Hudson Valley. Mine will be busy also, but, unfortunately, it's finishing a bathroom remodel.

The battles are usually around 2:00 PM but the village will be open and the camps from 10 - 4.  The kids would enjoy the farm animals and seeing the children dressed in period clothing.  You would have plenty to take pics of too.  Have a great weekend whatever you do C
