Summer Fun Kids’ Programs at Nevada County Depot and Museum
Follow the tracks to Summer Fun at the Nevada County Depot and Museum in historic Prescott, Arkansas on Friday, July 14, 22, and 29.
The Nevada County Depot and Museum is offering three exciting kids’ programs this July. The fun begins at 10 a.m. on Friday, July 14 with “All About Arkansas Symbols,” presented by the office of the Arkansas Secretary of State.
“Everyone knows what the Arkansas flag looks like and I think most of us know that the mockingbird is our state bird,” says Depot Museum Director, Jamie Simmons. “How many people know that we have a state rock? Or an official state tree? We’re going to explore all of our state’s official symbols.”
The following Saturday, July 22, Logoly State Park will be visiting with fun surprises for everyone. Wrapping up the programs on July 29 is Pioneer Day, with activities designed to let kids experience life before all of the modern conveniences. They will be honoring that DIY spirit by making ink out of berries with their own butter, just like the pioneers, but they will be doing it for fun instead of necessity.
July Summer Fun programs are scheduled for 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on July 14, 22, and 29 at the Nevada County Depot and Museum, 403 West 1st Street South, in historic Prescott, Arkansas. Activity supplies will be provided and light refreshments will be served. All kids' programs are free, but registration is required.
