One of our favorite events to participate in is county fairs.

We reenact and demonstrate an authentic 1849 camp of a family traveling across the Oregon Trail and educate the public on the journey of the early pioneers. Ox-drawn covered wagon rides available as well.


Antique car? That's cool... Horse and carriage? Yeah, that's cool too... Oxen and covered wagon? Yep, that's really cool! Every so often we enjoy the honor of ushering a bride and groom on their special day.
