Children’s Farm Chore Challenge Day
July 22 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Saturday, July 22, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oliver Kelley Farm, 15788 Kelley Farm Road, Elk River. In the 19th century, farm children made huge contributions to the welfare of the family, and the same is true today. At the historic Kelley Farm, children can participate in the kinds of chores that kids did over 100 years ago. See who can load the most hay onto the wagon and how fast can they unload it, who can get the laundry scrubbed the cleanest and who can haul the most baskets of weeds out of the garden. After chores, try out some 19th century games or ride the horse-drawn trolley along the nature trails. Cost: Included with site admission of $12 adults, $10 seniors and college students, $6 ages 5-17, free age 4 and under and Minnesota Historical Society members. 763-441-6896 or [email protected]
