Historical crafts come alive during Heritage Day 2020 at McArthur-Burney Falls State Park on Sunday, October 10 from Noon to 4:00 p.m.
Youngsters’ eyes are opened to the Pioneer (circa 1870’s) lifestyle, an era before internet and smart phones. For the mature crowd, it’s an opportunity to remember stories told by ancestors and historians. For all, it is a hands-on experience with teachers dressed in period costumes.
Among the items participants can make are candles, doll-making using native materials, branding cedar rounds and the lost art of calligraphy. Additional exhibits include blacksmithing, brand designing, rope-making, shave and curl, shingle making, two-man saw bucking, spinning and weaving, and bead-making.
Enjoy musical entertainment provided by the ever popular Ol’ Time Fiddlers while eating the available food and drinks..
