This event is in the past.
This is an event that has several incredible little sections to it. There is the midway in town which starts on Friday night. Saturday and Sunday the feature event is the Truck and Tractor Pull, which has a cost attached to it.
The rest of the events are by donation only and include showing all of the antique equipment from the 1800's and eary 1900's, there will be blacksmithing, there are many agricultural events going on, the Museum is featuring "Women in Mining" there will be two panning troughs for children to play in, and Saturday for certain we do have a club member for panning gold, there is an excellent display of literature easily read on Women in Mining, and an extensive library to which one can always get the name and get it later from the library.
There will be a small rock and gem show and on Sunday the Museum will be honored with the presence of Lenora Taylor, the World Championship Panner. Lived in mining all of her life, the little girl from Hedly, BC who grew up, and won this honor. The Museum will be open for all of the antiques that are on display for the weekend, so it is truly a step back into time.
The Historical Society have made a new Clay Baking Oven by hand, and it will be fired up and one can definitely sample the food and again it is by donation.
There will be tea and goodies served (by donation) in the Luxton Hall, there will be Cooperage (Black Smithing) happening, which is an art unto itself.
