A ”Strawberry Social” – 150 years ago in our neighbourhood

June 24

Participants can pay homage to the first settlers at this event frozen in time. They can eat period food, compete in the best vintage costume awards, enjoy entertainment (special exhibits, period music, carousel, carnival booths) and play old time games as they would have done 150 years ago. At that time, people watched and wagered on competitive walking; a competitive walking race will be recreated to celebrate pedestrianism.
