     This annual program is presented every September. The public is invited to a full weekend of chores, crafts, games, and fun representing more than a century of Paradise Ridge history. Demonstrations are presented as well as hands-on activities. Learn to walk on stilts and play old time games. Take up a hammer and nails to make a small loom, then learn to weave a piece of cloth on it. A favorite activity is learning to pan for beautiful gemstones, and maybe even real gold! Music, food, and entertainment add fun to the days. Come and enjoy the family fun!
