Throughout the afternoon Tea Cup Gin will don Steam Punk costumes and perform from the balcony of the house, and carnival entertainment including magician, mime, fire twirler and juggler will be roaming the grounds.  We will also have a tarot card reader for those who wish to have a look into the future. A ticketed Merry Hill house experience is also available for $35 per person, but limited, tour the house while enjoying a locally-sourced small plate, prepared by Chef Joel Bohlin and Chef Justin Cole of Village Diner, mingling with and dramatic readings by Emmy Award Winner Michael Malone, and a Hibiscus & Hemp Cocktail. Local classic car owners will also have a Model T and Model A on display and available for more photo opportunities.  A local Plein Air artist will also be set up capturing the afternoon on canvas, and you can purchase raffle tickets to be entered to win the finished piece!
