Haliburton Village, officially settled in 1864, turns 150 years old this year. Let’s celebrate!
We’ve actually already been celebrating in a variety of ways but, if you’ve missed out don’t worry, there are still more fun events to come.
I was privileged to attend a birthday celebration held in Glebe Park on August 9th hosted by the Haliburton Highlands Museum. The organizers had set up game stations, blacksmith and spinning demonstrations and opened the doors to all the pioneer village buildings at the museum area. My party had a great time trying “The Graces”, a fun game involving 2 sticks, a hoop and a friend as well as crochet and bocce ball. We missed out on the tug of war but the kids in my group sure found the sweet treats, also known as cupcakes.
Thank you to the Haliburton Highlands Museum for putting on this fun family event – we were sure glad we could help Haliburton celebrate.
Here’s a video clip, compliments of The Highlander Online, of some of the activities presented on this day – keep your eye out there are more chances to celebrate coming in September.
