For more than twenty years now, Glen Allen Day has been ushering in autumn. This year’s even will be held Saturday, October 5 at the Meadow Farm Museum and Crump Park in Henrico County. It’s a day-long celebration of family fun and entertainment. And plenty of food.

Throughout the day Miss Sheri the Clown will make her rounds. There will also be face painting, airbrush tattoos, laser tag, a game truck, a live petting zoo and interpretative live demonstration of blacksmithing, farming and more.

There will also be musical entertainment on two stages, including sets by School of Rock, Mountain Highway Band, The Company Store Band, and Glen Allen’s Got Talent.
