On Sunday, Sept. 27, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., everyone is invited to the Rios-Caledonia Adobe, 700 Mission St., to enjoy “bygone ways of bygone days” at the second annual Caledonia Days.
Along with a barbecue, volunteers will cook meals in old-fashioned Dutch Ovens over open fires, offering a delicious main dish and dessert for tasting.
Skilled artists and artisans will demonstrate crafts that were necessary to the DIY life of early days. The event is presented in an early day setting by Friends of the Adobes and Native Sons of the Golden West #150.
