25th Annual Days of Living History
September 08, 2018 - September 09, 2018
Step back in time and have some fun! The Gold Nugget Museum is proud to present the 25th annual Days of Living History on Saturday, September 8 and Sunday, September 9 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
This is an opportunity for children to experience life in the “good old days,” from the 1850s to the 1950s. Parents and grandparents also will enjoy a walk down Memory Lane. This family event features displays and hands-on activities highlighting life on the Paradise Ridge.
Children love to make things. Under the guidance of museum volunteers, children make candles, birdhouses, rope, jam, bread, and cornhusk dolls. They can try carpentry, flower pounding, tin art, laundry, and more. There is a barbershop for the boys and a beauty salon for the girls. Old-time games, gold panning, a bake walk, a branding display, blacksmith, and apple polisher are among the offerings.
Admission is $5 and includes all the activities and supplies. Children aged three and under are admitted free. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.
The event takes place at the Gold Nugget Museum, 502 Pearson Road in Paradise. For additional information, please call 872-8722.
