The Cambria Historical Society is planning to have another successful Heritage Day, on Saturday May 25 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Heirloom Gardens at the Cambria Historical Museum, corner of Burton Drive and Center Streets. Success includes not only community attendance in the free event, but also participation in demonstrations and displays of skills.
In order to celebrate Cambria’s heritage by focusing on “all things old fashioned,” there will be a Maypole dance to open the festivities, followed by demonstrations of quilting, spinning and butter churning.
Mother Goose will be there with her goose to delight children of all ages, and there will be a unique craft project for the kids. Local owners of working Model A and Model T cars will display their vehicles in the back yard along with the antique Cambria fire wagon, all great photo ops. Live music on the front porch will entertain as patrons munch on hot dogs and popcorn and sip the popular root beer floats.
In the early days of the society this event was the group’s major fundraiser, but since that has shifted to the fall Harvest Festival, they are not enlisting vendors, but others who have a skill to share. Many more activities are already committed or in the planning stage, but the Historical Society is searching for more participants. Contact Facilitator Consuelo Macedo soon at 927-3159.
