It’s your chance to step back in time and do some everyday hands on work. Different activities will be scheduled each day such as wood punching, quill pen writing, candle dipping, cow milking, and blacksmithing. Join in the fun and you will receive a Participant Certificate. It’s not to be missed it’s your chance to experience the 1800′s like never before.

3. It’s Shubie Park Interesting Insect Day! Grow a grasshopper or make a water strider. Try their insect identification activity and check out the insect display case with its incredible collection. You’ll get to discover how insects help humans too!
