PHC hosts Historical Fall Fest

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

Take a step back in time to the days of the pioneers. The O'Brien County Conservation Board is holding the annual Historical Fall Fest at the Prairie Heritage Center on Saturday, Sept. 22, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This event is always a hit for everyone in the family.

Come for the afternoon or just spend a few hours taking in the fall scenery and the fun. Enjoy a horse-drawn wagon ride through the prairie to the pioneer cemetery.

Sample fresh pressed apple cider and popcorn.

Experiment with some older farm tools. Enter your toss in the bison chip throwing contest. Build a Prairie Gnome Home. Climb into the covered wagon to see what pioneer life was like. There will be a spinning demonstration, crafts, games and fun for everyone.

There is always so much to see and do at the Prairie Heritage Center, and this festival is one of people's favorites!

There is no charge for this event. Make plans to participate. For more information, contact the Conservation Board at 712-295-7200.
