Rugby's spring festival was in mid-May. We thought of going, but didn't, because there were too many other places to go in May. Going to Rugby would have been especially appropriate for us, since I've been researching Rugby for the past six weeks, the historic houses at Rugby inspired us to buy our own historic house, and we had a home wedding in the garden of our Rugby-inspired historic house.
The summer homecoming is in early September. That's the time for us to go to Rugby. It's on Labor Day weekend, and though we'll probably be busy with my dancer husband's choreography and rehearsals and our marcher son's band activities, we don't have any family holidays to compete. In fact, it's a totally appropriate time, because the family that built our house purchased the land exactly 100 years before on September 6, 1909.
Of course, we could go any time. The hiking trails and swimming hole are always there, and the archives, book shop, general store, library, mercantile, restaurant, and tearoom are almost always open. A summer weekend would be nice.
