Jerseyville Victorian Festival

We had our large beginning jam group tonight and got to talking about the Victorian Festival that is held every year in Jerseyville. Several of the participants asked that I blog this, so here it is!

The festival is held over Labor Day Weekend, specifically on Saturday, Sunday and Monday (August 30 - September 1, 2008). The Chris Talley Trio will be playing all three days from 1:30 - 5:00 p.m. This is a very family-friendly event, and there are lots of neat things to see while you're there. You can tour the mansion (really fun!!!), and there is a Civil War reenactment, shooting of canons, various demonstrations, displays, lots of people dressed in era clothing, and food, beverages and all kinds of interesting things for sale. Take a look at the website for more detailed information. I highly recommend this event!
