WILLIAMSTOWN -- Head out to Sheep Hill Saturday, June 29 at dusk to meander the meadows for a bedazzling firefly show. One of Williamstown Rural Land Foundation’s most popular events, the evening includes a round of family storytelling by Williamstown’s own three-generational Leamon boys.
From the hills of Yorkshire, England via Lubbock, Texas and finally to the Purple Valley, Grandfather Tom will retell his famed bedtime stories with the participation of son, Jonathan, and grandson, Zach. "Crocko-Rollo" (a Terrified Horse, two Tractors, one nice and one not so nice, a night with a fearful storm and a bog with quick sand and no escape) is just one of the fascinating stories that may be told.
Before heading out into the meadow amongst the "lightening bugs," roast marshmallows over the campfire and make s’mores. Bring blankets and wear insect repellent. The event starts at 8 p.m. and goes until 10 p.m.
Suggested donation is $3, $6 per family. Severe weather cancels the event.
Sheep Hill is located on Route 7, about one mile south of the Williamstown rotary. For more information visit www.wrlf.org.
