Take Dad on a trip to the past at Haney Heritage Village and Museum on Father’s Day on June 21.

A $6 pancake breakfast will be served at Marjorie’s Tea Room.

Toe-tapping entertainment starts at 9 a.m. with local musician and longtime Haney friend, Bruce Strachan. He has played throughout the U.S. and Western Canada, performing songs that have long been crowd favorites.

Join Tanya at 10:30, 11:30 and 12:30 p.m. for Circle Time. Participate in children’s activities that involve interactive songs with movement to promote early literacy and good old-fashioned fun.  Children can sing along to such favourites as Itsy Bitsy Spider and Slippery Fish.

Enjoy wagon rides, a carnival with games of chance and skill, face- painting, children’s crafts, panning for gold and a barbecue lunch.

View historic displays and demonstrations by the Shuswap Pioneer Collectors Club, Shuswap Spinners and Weavers, the Shuswap Quilter’s Guild and Neil Sutcliffe with his vintage radio collection. Dwayne Danley of Danley Carriage & Wheel will demonstrate the art of wheel wrighting.

Challenge dad to a game of croquet or discover the pioneer secrets of the heritage park with a special scavenger hunt. Enter Dad’s name for the door prize draw.

Enjoy a tour of the R.J. Haney house, which will be open to the public. See how Shuswap pioneers lived and played while discovering the stories of our rich history.
