Travel Tips for Mount Morris
Mount Morris Tip
Just drove through here on Greyhound a few days ago (August 13) and was not amazed by the town, but it was neat... commonly advenrtised in shop and restaurant windows were the letters A and C (AC) of course referring to and advertising the fact that that particular store or restaurant was equipped with air-conditioning. Neat town!

Arts and Crafts Show
The annual Arts and Crafts Show for Wyoming County is held annually at Letchworth State Park, normally the first week in October. Just buy a ticket to get in the park and access to all arts and crafts vendors is free.
More than three hundred tents of jewelry, woodworking, leather goods, candles, herbs and scents, paintings, hand-made children's clothing, hats, belts, sandals, etc.etc.etc.
Most of the vendors are not from large commercial firms (a few are) but are family businesses or individual artists who use the venue to sell their wares.
You must be there early and cannot be in a hurry to leave. Why? Because the crowds are humunogous and there is only one entry/exit road. Even the tour buses get stuck in the traffic.
to get there:
I-390 to the Mt. Morris exit onto route 408 south/west. take route 408 south to connect to route 36 (Main Street). go west on Main Street, out of Mt. Morris and look for the signs for Letchworth Park entrance. Park attendants will guide you to the arts/crafts show
Flint knapping (making a pointed tool from raw flint stone) is a craft that native Americans and the early settlers used proficiently. Every August, the Genesee Valley Knappers have a gathering at High Banks Recreation Area (Letchworth State Park) to show how it is done. There are native American encampments, knapping exhibits, black powder and rifle demonstrations and 19th century exhibits and persons "in character". It is a fun time for the kids to see how raw materials can be used to develop a society without damaging the environment.
The encampment is usually the last week of August (See website below for details).
The only cost is the price of parking in the park.
