Heritage Day in Buckhorn
Feb. 10, 2017
BY TERRY GILLIS
Buckhorn kicks off Canada’s 150th Birthday Celebration by holding Heritage Day at the Buckhorn Community Centre on Saturday, February 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This is a Family event with something for everyone. There will be activities both inside and outside the Centre.
Outside there is public skating, maple syrup on snow sampling, snow shoeing instruction (we have the snowshoes), an outdoor survival camping display and complimentary horse and wagon rides.
Indoors we have the Mitchell Family – I.R.35 Drummers from Curve Lake; Kim Muskrat - drumming and story telling; fly fishing, quilting, fur trappers, Hiawatha and Ojibwa First Nations, an Aboriginal archeologist and many children’s activities. These are only a few of the many interesting displays taking place.
You mustn’t miss the baking contest. This is open for pies and tarts, cakes and cupcakes, cookies, and bread. For entry rules, please see the Buckhorn Community Centre web page at buckhorncommunitycentre.com. Judging takes place at 2 p.m.
Enjoy chili with Bannock and then why travel to Ottawa for a Beavertail. Enjoy one right here in Buckhorn.
Heritage Day is a great time and place to learn facts about things you may not have known and just to really enjoy a family event.
Admission: Families $5.00, Adults $2.00, Children $1.00
Buckhorn Community Centre, 1782 Lakehurst Rd., Buckhorn, ON
