One of the Creston Museum’s most exciting days of the year returns Saturday, when families are invited to Kids’ Day!

“I would be lying if I said we didn’t enjoy the ice cream and messy activities ourselves, but, really, who says history has to be boring?” said museum program co-ordinator Alyssa Jackson. “So we have collected some of our favourite parts of what makes the valley what it is today, and packed it into a kid — and adult — friendly day of guided and independent games and activities.”

Visitors can pan for “gold”, pack fruit like a pro with their team, test their spelling prowess and become the spelling bee champion, build a miniature cabin, get messy at the barbershop with shaving cream — and so much more!

“Did I mention winning pennies to redeem for penny candy, and free ice cream and lemonade from 1-1:30 sponsored by Overwaitea?” asked Jackson. (“Parents get some too!”)

The event runs 10 a.m.-4 p.m. June 13.
