Visitors to Buckeye Woods Park in Lafayette Township last weekend were transported back in time.

The 29th annual Pioneers in the Park Festival included demonstrations of crafts and skills needed to survive in 18th- and 19th-century Ohio, along with bluegrass and dulcimer music and an old-fashioned baseball game.

The free event was the kickoff of the Medina County Fall Foliage Tour.
