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.
