Farmer’s Market vendors offering pumpkins and apples will be set up at Sainte-Marie’s front entrance.

Heritage Activities
On the historic site, there will be lots of heritage activities for families to enjoy, including pumpkin decorating, traditional planting of “The Three Sisters” (corn, beans, and squash), sampling of historic foods and tea, torch-making demonstrations, corn-on-the cob, and an historic encampment. Costumed staff will share the story of the original 17th-century Jesuit mission.
