PHOTOS: Blue Hills Trailside Museum Fall Festival 2012

Make your own apple cider, great finds at their yard sale and live animals.

The 2012 Fall Festival at the Blue Hills Trailside Museum in Milton began on Friday and runs through Monday afternoon.

Families from Sharon, Canton and surrounding towns came to make accorn necklaces, press apples to make cider, explore a huge yard sale, watch live animal presentations and walk through the zoo which features two white snowy owls, two white tailed deer, assorted birds and an adorable otter.

If you weren't able to get there over the weekend, you still have time to get over there today.

"We've recently installed a new trail for visual and handicap people," Norman Smith, director of the museum said. "There is braile on the new trail signs and a rope that runs along the trail. A wooden ball on the rope means that there is a station and a wooden cube lets people know that there is a bench."

On Monday, Oct. 8, at 1:00 p.m. the DCR Commissioner, Ed Lambert, will be on hand with the Vice President of the Mass Audubon Society, Banks Poor, who will cut a ribbon to dedicate this new trail.

Here is a photo gallery of some of the weekend events.
