Back When Day and Arab Community Fair have been combined and will be held each year on the fourth Saturday in April. Come hear the stories of what life was like way “back when” and join in on all the Community Fun with vendors, food, entertainment and more! Visitors get to interact with volunteers as they demonstrate tasks that were necessary back in the early 1900’s to be a successful farming community; quilting, grinding cornmeal and black-smithing were certainly among the list.
In the 1935 Hunt School, you’ll get a glimpse of what it was like to go to school “back when.” Then you’ll need a break, so stop by Smiths’ Country Store and try your luck at a game of Checkers (against an opponent that’s been playing the game for decades).
When: April 23 | 12-2 PM
