(Note from Mary Jo: The family rate has usually been the price of 2 parents and 2 children, and then no charge for rest of children.)
This activity-filled weekend event has become a favorite for families as well as the serious history buff.
(Another note from Mary Jo: Also, in the past, we have often gotten a discount for being in costume! Farbies are welcome [Look up farby if you don’t know it! ], but please try to be as authentic as you possibly can.)
