There will also be a children’s tent with a colouring contest, crafts, and a variety of relay races for all ages to enjoy. In addition to the display of Frost & Wood implements, there will be several other agricultural demonstrations taking place including threshing and baling. Further exhibits focus on heritage livestock, horse-drawn wagons, and a wide assortment of delicious home-baked goods, plants, produce, and much more. Admission is $10, with kids under 12 free, or $25 for families. If you are a member of the museum, admission is only $5.
