On Thursday, October 11, 2012, the second annual Waterloo Harvest Moon Festival, an Art Sale and Auction, will be held from 6:30-9:30 pm at the newly restored Waterloo Village Meeting House.

All proceeds of the event will benefit the Waterloo Restoration Project. The Harvest Moon Festival is sponsored by the Friends of Waterloo Village, a small, but committed cadre of citizens dedicated to securing funds for the restoration and sustainability of one of the Skylands region's historic treasures.

Autumn is a glorious time of year in the New Jersey Skylands. Why not, when planning your fall getaway, consider a long weekend at the Whistling Swan Inn with an evening spent at the Harvest Moon Festival? Tickets to the event are $35 per person or two for $60. For ticket information, call 973-347-1045 or email waterlooharvestmoon@gmail.com.

Waterloo Village is a restored 19th century canal town in Stanhope. In its heyday it was approximately the half-way point in the 102-mile trip along the Morris Canal, which ran from Jersey City to Phillipsburg, New Jersey. It possessed all the accommodations necessary to service the needs of a canal operation, including an inn, general store, church, blacksmith shop and a watermill.
