WPA Day at Cedars of Lebanon State Park – Saturday, 6 October 2018

Split-Rail-Fence-Woods-1235863Learn to pitch horseshoes from 9 Time World Champion Joan Elmore. Watch Snoopy the sorghum-making mule do his thing. Then grab a partner and enter the cross-cut log sawing contest. If log sawing is not your thing, how about a game of  checkers? Or chess? Be sure to check out the basket maker, the weaver, the quilter or the potter, each demonstrating their craft. Also see a lumberjack harrow, and watch skilled craftsmen make oak shingles the way they used to. They’re handy with an axe, a froe and a mallet!

It’s an old-time, family-friendly event and it’s all free, so come join us for a step back in time.
