Jackson County Parks + Rec is offering Trails Days, a variety of traditional games and activities at Missouri Town 1855, guaranteed to bring smiles to all of the kids.
The event is 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. June 7 at 8010 East Park Road, Lee’s Summit, in Fleming Park. Admission is $5 for adults and children 5-13 and $3 for seniors, children under 5 free.
The games will include gunnysack races, stilts, tug-of-war and marbles are just a few of the time-honored classics. Special crafts projects, such as rope making and tin punching, will give your children a take-home memento to remember for years to come. Every kid is a winner when participating in an old-fashioned pie-eating contest.
There will be entertainment by the Missouri Town Musicians and Dancers. Missouri Town’s drover will show off the skills of the year-old ox team.
Dr. Field’s “Good Medicine Show” will feature magic tricks at morning and afternoon presentations.
Also in observance of National Trails Day, a special exhibit will provide information about your ever-expanding Jackson County’s Biking and Hiking Trails System.
