Great weather, many visitors, demonstrators, and numerous other volunteers made Color Sunday at Pioneer Town in Cedaredge a big success.
Much of the success of the event was due to the pre-planning of Surface Creek Valley Historical Society board member Jane Everett.
She had contacted Black Canyon Camera Club, blacksmith Paul Michaels, leather worker Dick McGuire, and Cranky Quilter Polly Pulver to demonstrate and display some of their work and interact with visitors. Small samples of ginger beer (non-alcoholic) were offered at the Lizard Head Saloon and organ music was played throughout the day in the Chapel of the Cross.
With everything else going on throughout the museum, it was a pair of Great Horned Owls high in a tree above the old Colby Store that stole the show.
A lunch of chili and corn bread was offered to all of the volunteers, including those who demonstrated their crafts.
Everyone will have one more chance to visit the buildings at Pioneer Town this year. The town will reopen for AppleFest this weekend, Saturday, Oct. 6, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, October 7, 1 to 4 p.m.
The Antique and Classic Car Show will be held, Saturday only, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. near the blacksmith shop and chapel at the west end of Pioneer Town. Cedar Mesa Club's food booth will be adjacent to the Blacksmith Shop during the car show.blog comments powered by Disqus
