Father’s Day: Black Powder Day

Step back into the 1880’s with Dad this Father’s Day with muskets, pistols, bows and arrows – and even a blacksmith! Spectators of all ages will enjoy two performances from the Red Mountain Renegades! With pistols, shotguns and rifles these cowboy action shooting shows will take you back to the days of the Wild West. The Fraser Valley Frontiersmen will be on site demonstrating antique firearms, primitive archery & tomahawk throwing. There’ll be a Trader’s Row with vendors, spinners and weavers and live music with Bruce Coughlan from Tillers Follie. Plan to stay the day as Father’s Day wouldn’t be complete without a sizzlin’ barbeque! If you prefer a sit down meal book the whole family into our café for a Sunday favourite: traditional Roast Beef & Yorkshire Pudding with mashed potatoes, seasonal veggies and gravy for $17.95

BC’s Museum of Rural Life

Located near the junction of the Harrison and Fraser Rivers, the Kilby Historic Site stands as the only reminder of the once thriving community of Harrison Mills, British Columbia, Canada.

Step back in time and enjoy a leisurely tour of the Kilby Historic Site with its magnificent 1906 General Store Museum. Visitors will view a fascinating gallery of product packaging dating back to the 1920s and 1930s. Don’t miss the intriguing artifacts in the heritage Post Office and Manchester House Hotel; both were an integral part of the Harrison Mills community at the turn of the twentieth century.
