SCUGOG: People will once again have the opportunity to step back into time, when Pioneer Day returns to the Scugog Shores Museum Village, on Sunday, Aug. 20th.
The event will run, from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m., and will feature: heritage demonstrations, by demonstrators such as the blacksmith and woodwright; historical presentations and kids activities.
There is also expected to be a larger vendors market than last year, and new to the event this year is a performance by Cameron and Clara Hick, a british car display, and a model train display.
Museum supervisor, Hannah Scott told The Standard why she thinks the event has been so popular in the community every year.
“I think it is because Scugog, and more specifically Port Perry, is so connected to history,” she said. “We also have an older population, and they like to come to the museum for nostalgia. I think families and kids like coming to the event, because it is something new for them and is different and exciting.”
Ms. Scott said the event usually brings between 200 to 300 people to the museum grounds each year and added they are hoping for over 300 this year.
Admission to the event is $4 for an adult, $3 for students and seniors, $2 for children ages 4 to 12, and and children 4 years of age and under get in free.
The museum village is located at 16210 Island Rd. on Scugog Island.
