Every day this summer Huble Homestead Historic Site is open for self-led activities, guided tours and lunch.

Looking for that unique adventure to take Dad on for Father’s Day? Huble Homestead’s got you covered with a free pancake breakfast to start the day off right.

Even if Dad wants to sleep in, he’ll get a sundae until 5 p.m. if he’d like that better.

After that take the family on a treasure hunt or challenge each other to a game of horseshoes.

Later this month there is a Watson Weekend for those who want to stretch their sleuthing skills outside of looking for where you put your glasses this time.

June 25 to 27 bring a group along to take a shot at finding clues and solve puzzles and brain teasers to earn prizes.

The sleuthing adventures are suitable for all ages and activities are free with admission by donation.

For those more serious about their testing their investigative talents the target is Sherlock Saturday June 26 which is a timed activity in an exit room style game. This sleuthing activity is recommended for those 12 years and up and tickets are $10 per person in advance and available through www.hublehomestead.ca.

As Canada Day approaches and people are looking for something a little different to do there is a week-long celebration planned for Dominion Day from June 28 to July 3.

Visitors can enjoy self-guided activity and craft kits, have a complimentary butter tart or piece of cake, and learn more about Canada and our region through exhibits at the site. To really get your hands on history, pre-book spaces for heritage skills demonstrations on July 1 or July 3.

The site is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each summer day. Shop in the General Store for locally made items, old-fashioned candies, pie, ice cream treats, and lunch from the barbecue. The park’s open green spaces are perfect for picnics and lawn games and everyone is welcome to enjoy some physically distanced fun.

Guests are reminded that masks are required in all indoor spaces at the historic site and that the General Store and Huble house are subject to occupancy limits. Visitors have access to hand wash stations and sanitizer.

Huble Homestead Historic Site is located on the unceded traditional territory of the Lheidli T’enneh, 40 km north of Prince George, just off Highway 97 on Mitchell Road, and is open daily until September 6. Admission is by donation, and dogs are welcome. To book demonstration time slots, view activity schedules, and learn more about safety measures, visit www.hublehomestead.ca, or call 250-564-7033.
