UPPER SADDLE RIVER, N.J. -- As the leaves begin to show off their colors, it's once again time for the Upper Saddle River Historical Society's Harvest Festival. This year's festivities will be on Sunday, Oct. 23.

Festival features include:

  • A petting zoo and pony rides.
  • Kids games and prizes.
  • A variety of demonstrations, including cider-pressing, crafts -- spinning, lace-making and weaving, and blacksmithing
  • A giant pumpkin contest.
  • Gypsy fortunetelling and ghost stories.
  • Tours of the Hopper-Goetschius House.

The Upper Saddle River Library is co-sponsoring the event.

The event will run from 1-4 p.m. on the grounds of the Hopper-Goetschius House Museum, 245 Lake St., Upper Saddle River.

At least 277 years old, the Hopper-Goetschius house is the oldest remaining house in Upper Saddle River. The Hopper family built the house and farmed a large area of land. It became the Rev. Stephen Goetschius' home in 1814, and it stayed in his family for a century and a half.
