Is this worth going to and will children enjoy it? I've looked it up on the internet and seen what all they have, but has anyone been. Give me your opinion.

We have gone for the past 3 years. My kids are 12 and 4 and they like it. Not sure if they have anything different this year, but there's lots of crafts and food for sale. The homemade peanut brittle is awesome.

Yes, it is worth going to...I went last year and I had never been. My kids had a good will enjoy seeing how they lived in the pioneer days. We had lots of fun...

We went for the first time about 3 years ago and LOVE it. My family considers it a part of our holiday traditions now. You see so much living history and there is lots to do. The food is fantastic and everyone is so nice. Give yourself at least 3 hours to walk through and enjoy everything.

It is VERY worth the trip. They are having their second half of Homestead Fest Oct 18-19 (Sat & Sun), the Haunted Homestead Oct 24-25 (Fri & Sat, but it is best to not bring young children to this one), and Trick-or-Treat on Halloween night. You will be very glad you went.

I had a blast when I was a kid going. Do they still make the homemade sasprilla? I loved that stuff. They have lots of neat crafts as well.

I might just take my brother out there this year.
