From Boulder County Information:
Boulder County, Colo. – Join us for an evening of fun at Walker Ranch Homestead. Families are encouraged to bring a picnic supper to enjoy and are asked to remember to bring a blanket as there are no tables at the homestead. After a picnic, visitors can talk with costumed volunteers to see what fun and chores pioneers experienced in the 1880s.
Visitors will be able to play children’s games of the past — those enjoyed by pioneer settlers as well as by Native American children. Guest can also check out the log house where popcorn should be popping, join the sing-along in the wagon barn, help churn butter and do washboard laundry. Visitors can also see a few visiting farm animals to learn about livestock early Boulder County settlers raised and take a tour of the homestead.
This special event is free and fun for all ages. It takes place July 20 from 5-7:30 p.m. at the Walker Ranch Homestead.
To get to the Walker Ranch homestead, go approximately 7.4 miles up Flagstaff Mountain Road, west of Boulder. Follow directional signs to the site. For more information, call 303-776-8848 or visit www.BoulderCountyOpenSpace.org.
