Huble hosting Kids' Carnival on Saturday

History's preservation is marked most clearly by the sound of children's laughter and the shine of wonder in young eyes.

Passing on the living lessons of our region's agricultural and business past is what the staff at Historic Huble Homestead works for each day. One of their favourite marks on the calendar is coming up next weekend. They host their annual Kids' Carnival on July 20.

It is a day "packed full of fun for the whole family," said Huble Homestead's executive director Krystal Leason. She called it a "colourful, joyful event" that was "a guaranteed blast" for the young and the young at heart, featuring free magic shows with William the Conjurer, pioneer-era field games and races, face painting, and carnival games with guaranteed prizes.

"And that's not all," said Leason. "Visitors can help make and then sample ice cream, explore the historic site to complete a treasure hunt, make crafts with Two Rivers Gallery, and watch the blacksmith at work in the shop."

Bring a picnic lunch or visit the General Store for hot dogs and hamburgers from the barbeque, and stock up on your favourite old-fashioned candies.

"Leave the city behind and enjoy all the fun and games outside on the banks of the Fraser River," said Leason.

Huble Homestead is located 30 minutes north of Prince George, just off Highway 97 on Mitchell Road. The Kids' Carnival runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and admission is a recommended donation of $10 per family.
