Traditionally, the night of the harvest moon was the first full moon of autumn when the setting sun is soon followed by the light of the rising moon. This extra light made it easy for farmers to get their crops in during the fall. Help celebrate this rare time of the year by taking a wagon ride through Spring Valley, roasting hot dogs and marshmallows over an open fire, and enjoying a lantern-lit tour of the farm.
Admission to the program costs $7 per person. Children ages 3 and younger are free.
Additional parking will be available at St. Matthew’s Catholic Church, 1001 E. Schaumburg Road, which is located just north of Heritage Farm.
