The 26th Annual Heritage Day will take place October 11 at McArthur-Burney Falls State Park from 12-4p.m. The event is sponsored by the McArthur-Burney Falls Interpretive Association in Partnership with CAL PARKS.
People will have the opportunity to remember and celebrate life in the 1870’s with educational fun for the whole family. Period costumes are welcome.
Activities will include pine bough doll-making, candle-making, bread-working, rope-making, blacksmithing, bead-working, and branding. Visitors will also be able to cut their own section of a log with an antique saw.
Fresh pressed apple cider will be served. The Burney Lions club will cater food. The Ol’ Time Fiddlers will be playing old folk and country tunes.
Admission to the park as well as all of the Heritage Day activities are free. People are encouraged to car pool. This is a great opportunity to take in the beauty of Burney Falls and celebrate the historical heritage of Pit River Country.
