CONSUELO MACEDO — Special to The Cambrian

“Something old and something new” comes to the Cambria Historical Museum this Saturday, May 14, with no admission charge. From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. visitors can indulge in favorite old-fashioned food items at low cost while strolling the grounds to view craftsmen and women at work, including wood carving, pine needle basket making, jade carving and butter churning (visitors can sample that butter on fresh bread). Children are invited to create their own dream catchers.

Cambria Fire Department’s historic fire truck will on display, and horse rides for kids and adults alike will return. In the transportation category, view the Historical Society’s spanking new exhibit of vintage bicycles and memorabilia on lend from British Sports Cars and Wally’s Bicycle Works from San Luis Obispo.

The exhibit includes a Tour de France bike, 1890s Penny Farthing high wheel, 1900 shaft-drive bike with wooden rims and a 1954 Swiss Army messenger bicycle. The exhibit will be displayed through mid-July, and was assembled in recognition of Cambria’s Stage 4 finish May 14 in the Amgen Tour of California bicycle race.

Regular museum hours are 1 to 4 p.m. Friday through Sunday and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday. For details, call 927-2891.
