Fun activities will be offered for all ages. Younger guests can complete pioneer chores to earn “money” to spend in an old-fashioned mercantile. They can also complete pioneer crafts, including tin punch, soap carving, and creating a rag doll. Dozens of crafters and vendors will sell an assortment of wares, and live entertainment will be offered throughout the day. There is no entrance fee, and guests can tour the historic Cheney Mansion (which dates back to 1827), one-room Lone Star school, Union Forest Church, McAdams and Hagen cabins, and museum for $5. Children 5 and under are free. A variety of food – including pioneer stew, fish sandwiches, chicken strips, ham and beans, hot dogs, homemade pies, and kettle corn – can be purchased, and Joe Ringhausen Orchards will sell a variety of apple delicacies.
