ASTORIA — The annual Old-Fashioned Fun and Games event returns to the Flavel House Museum 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 9 and 10, with a full slate of activities for kids, adults and families. The fun includes croquet and badminton, contests and prizes, butter- and ice cream-making demonstrations, apple pressing, textiles, blacksmithing, wagon rides and more.

So come have some lemonade and a corn dog (yes, they had these back then, too.) while kids learn how children entertained themselves during the Victorian era.
