There's fun for everyone in the family at the Mansfield Village Annual Mushroom Festival the last weekend of April.
Come early and register for organized mushroom hunts and buy or sell mushrooms at the auction. Win a cash prize for the largest mushroom each day, regardless of where it was found. Visitors who join in the mushroom hunt can take home, not only a delicious meal, but also a hand carved mushroom walking stick for those who find the largest and most mushrooms.
Registration for the hunt is Saturday and Sunday from 8 until 10 AM at Fox's Overlook. Entry fee $8.00. Mushrooms will be sold throughout the day at the Mushroom Auction both Saturday and Sunday, with thousands of dollars changing hands from bidders and sellers from near and far. The Auction will be held at the Red barn.
The Mansfield Village Car Show will be held Sunday only, with registration from 8 AM until Noon. Mansfield shops will be open and vendors will be set up selling arts, crafts, antiques and flea market gems.
