Calling all little wranglers, families & friends, Western Days are filled with cowboys and cowgirls October 13th & 14th ! Liberty Ridge Farm steps back in time to the OLD West from 1pm to 5pm Saturday and Sunday in Schaghticoke, NY. Western Day Weekend offer friends and families and opportunity to share with their children as the farm looks to entertain little rustlers and wranglers, with cowboys, cowgirls, prospectors and a Sheriff looking for new deputies. The family friendly roundup features; live music, face painting, balloon artistry, barrel racing on inflatable horses, The Rope a Steer challenge, marshmallow gun target practice and over 55 acres of farm-tastic fun.

Live music will be a special appearance by “The Flood Road Boys” who hail from upstate New York, playing an original recipe of Acoustic Folk Grass music. The quartet features the lyrics of J. Peter Yakel (guitar/vocals), framed by instrumentalists, “The Professor” Chris Schultz (banjo), and Pete “The Treat” Murphy (bass). Together, the boys create an assortment of homegrown foot-stompers and eye-weepin’ ballads as varied and unpredictable as the northeast seasons.

Devilish fear seekers have something to do fall weekend nights in the Capital Region of NY. Liberty Ridge Farm transforms from a family friendly fun day time location into a frightful farm of screams and shrieks after dark every weekend night in October. New for 2012 Liberty Ridge Farm has 5 haunted attractions that serve up fear to those who dare to reserve tickets. Information can be found on www.hauntny.com. The Harvest haunt at Liberty Ridge Farm runs October 12th, 13th, 19th, 20th, 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th.

“Western Days are full of fun, with a celebration filled with Apple cider donuts and baked goods, exciting shows, old fashioned games and a western appeal that is exciting for all age groups,” said Cynthia Gifford owner of Liberty Ridge Farm. “Our weekend celebration welcomes a new roundup of little wranglers, cowboys and cowgirls looking to get deputized by the Farm Sheriff, have their face painted by Magic Brushes or have ballon artistry fashioned by Farmer Bruce. We encourage parents with kids and friends to wear western items such as bandanas or cowboy hats as the farm shares the spirit of the old west. Little ones can try the marshmallow guns, and take part in old fashioned games and hands-on fun in Brad’s Barnyard.
