WEYBURN – Take a trip back into the early 20th century in one of the pioneer homes on display in Weyburn’s Heritage Village, or enjoy some live entertainment under a tent on the grounds, during Heritage Village Days on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 5 and 6.
The buildings and homes in the village will be open, with guides at many of the buildings as families and visitors come to explore.
Most of the homes will have memorabilia and antiques on display, many of them from the families who donated the homes that housed many area pioneer families in the Weyburn and surrounding area.
The village will be open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday. There is no admission to enter, with donations to be accepted at the gate. All proceeds from the event will go towards the Heritage Village.
In addition to the live entertainment, there will be barbecue concession, a bake sale, raffle, and demonstrations ranging from blacksmithing and rope-making to the outdoor oven and a steam engine, along with fun activities like face-painting on Saturday and riding the antique fire ladder truck both days.
Other activities will include colouring, lawn games, a treasure hunt and a splash zone. The sale of raffle tickets will end at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday.
A full lineup of local and area entertainers will hit the stage on both days, including Karissa Hoffart, dancers from De Tricky Feet dance studio, James Dionne, Graham Alexander on Friday.
The lineup on Saturday includes the Mahnke sisters, Keira, Mikaila and Tori. An open mic for karaoke will be available on both days when there is no one scheduled.
