John Donahue, Superintendent of Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, invites the public to join the annual "Millbrook Days" folklife festival on Saturday, Sept. 16, and Sunday, Sept. 17. Costumed volunteers and park staff will demonstrate 19th-century trades, crafts, and home and garden chores. The festival also features old-time children’s games and live, traditional music.
