The Cambria Heritage Days celebration is being reinstituted after a lapse of a couple of years, with the 2012 event set for 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, June 9 and 10.
Admission is free. Festivities are sponsored by the Cambria Historical Society and are to be held at the Cambria Historical Museum at the corner of Burton Drive and Center Street.
A feature of event is to be a talk in the Gurthrie-Bianchini gardens by local historian Dawn Dunlap at 2 p.m. Saturday, with topics ranging from 70 years of area rodeos to how people got into and out of Cambria in the late 1800s to profiles of the area’s first residents (besides Native Americans).
Live music at Heritage Days is to be by the Mud Skippers from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday and Devil’s Dandy Dogs from noon to 2 p.m. on Sunday. A barbecue and beverages will be offered for sale both days.
Never miss a local story.
Local craftspeople are to be demonstrating and selling their wares. White Horse Carriages from Paso Robles will offer carriage rides through town for a nominal fee. Heirloom items will be for sale. Local Native Daughters of the Golden West members are to sell root-beer floats.
