There is a living historic site that offers a peek into times gone by for area residence.
Huble Homestead is having the kick off to the summer season this weekend with special activities taking place during a Spring Fling Sunday and Monday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
"It's a great event for families with lots of music, of course, and games and crafts for the kids," said Krystal Etter, program manager. "Our staff will be teaching the May pole dance and people can help us decorate the May pole, too."
There will be many heritage demonstrations, which could mean making ice cream or butter, Etter added.
"On Monday there will be Victoria Day high tea, which will take place in the Huble parlour again this year and it's always a lot of fun," said Etter. "We don't usually get to go into the parlour and sit at the table but we have really nice dainties and some delicious tea and it's a really nice way to celebrate Victoria Day."
There will be pioneer games played during the Spring Fling.
"There's croquet and things like that kids can play anytime during the day and then we will be running old-fashioned games like sack races and egg-and-spoon races to help get you ready for a summer full of fun out at Huble Homestead," Etter said.
The site is dog-friendly and offers tours of original heritage buildings including Huble House, Salmon Valley post office, and the animal shelter, as well as replicas of the original general store, trapper's cabin, barns, blacksmith shop and the First Nations fish camp that offers a glimpse into how people used to live.
"In the general store we have some new old-fashioned candies for sale this year as well as a large variety of locally-made goods," said Etter. "During the Spring Fling we will also offer a pancake breakfast in the morning and the barbecue will be on, too."
People are invited to bring a picnic or walk the historic Giscome Portage.
"We're trying really hard to keep Huble Homestead affordable for the people of Prince George so admission for a family is only $10," said Etter.
Huble Homestead is located 40 km north of Prince George, just off Highway 97 on Mitchell Road.
