Blast in the Past!

Sun 10th

Free – $12
A model covered wagon is parked outside a replica 1800s barn for Burritt's Spring Farm Days event.

Immerse yourself in the past with Burritt on the Mountain’s exciting new event, Blast in the Past! From March 9th through Labor Day, join for fun activities perfect for the whole family.

Designed for families with children ages 3 to 12 years old, Blast in the Past offers engaging hands-on experiences that provide a glimpse into the lives of early Alabamians. Let your kids dive into history as they dress up in period clothing, enjoy pretending to cook and clean in an 1800s kitchen, and discover how to wash clothes using a traditional scrub board. Watch as they learn how to weave on a loom and enjoy building their very own kid-sized “log” cabin. But the fun doesn’t stop there! Children can dig in a garden, try their luck at panning for gems, and experience a day at school using slates and chalk. Don’t forget to visit “Boxy,” our faux cow, for a hands-on milking experience that kids won’t soon forget.

Throughout the event, you’ll also have the chance to admire examples of folk art displayed in each of our Historic Park houses. Plus, join in on the excitement of our scavenger hunt that provides an extra reason to visit each house. Be sure to return to the Welcome Center so you can take some of the fun home with you when you claim a prize for completing the scavenger hunt!

Don’t miss out on this unforgettable journey through history at Blast in the Past. It’s a day of family fun and exploration that you won’t want to miss!
