If it feels like it’s been too long since you’ve had a waffle with white sauce, you should head to Fall on the Farm at Mennonite Heritage Village this holiday Monday.

Historical harvest activities are the order of the day, with a hog-butchering demonstration on-going through the day, and threshing and fieldwork demonstrations. The museum will also give guided tours, and there will be storytelling in the Old Colony Church.

Kids can enjoy activities starting at 10 a.m., including games and races, a petting zoo, pony rides, the Barrel Train and more.

In the pavilion, Steinbach’s Old Time Country Band will take the stage at 11 a.m. for a rollicking good time. The Wiebe Sisters gospel and country act plays at 12:30 p.m. Magician and comedian Mr. Ken will wow with family fun at 2 p.m., followed by country band 5 Acres Band.

Steinbach and Area Garden Club presents a workshop titled "Seed Saving and Preparing Your Garden for Winter" at 2 p.m., followed by a pork auction at 3:30 p.m.

As usual, great food will be there to tempt, including the famous waffles, fresh corn on the cob, schnetje and stoneground wheat bread.
