Please join the CT Draft Horse Rescue for a very special Oktoberfest/Family Fun Day on Sunday, October 17th at Autumn Ridge, the farm of the CDHR (113 Chestnut Hill Rd, East Hampton CT 06424). Just like two draft horses are better than one, they have combined their October Family Day with their annual Oktoberfest celebration into one draft-sized, family-friendly event. Admission is FREE! Come meet the horses of the CDHR from 11am - 3pm. The CDHR is also celebrating its 10th anniversary, so come and share their pride and joy of Autumn Ridge and its equine residents! There will be vendors, raffles,games, a kids’ zone, face painting, and much more! For more information, please visit www.ctdraftrescue.org or www.facebook.com/ctdraftrescue. This event is rain or shine.
