Bring your mischief-makers to Pirate, Spies and Rogues Day on Sat. at Newtown Square, PA’s Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation to face off in pirate battles, embark on spy missions, scrawl a secret message in invisible ink and design a flag.
Blueberries are ready to be picked, and local farms and orchards will celebrate Sat. & Sun.
