Put on your best red, white and blue and get ready to RTC celebrate an old-fashioned Fourth at the Farm Museum. From picnics to fireworks, the museum staff wants to regale you and your family from noon to dusk.
And don't worry about the weather. Rain might dampen the fireworks, but it won't stop the rest of the day's fun.Join the games, see the fashion show of clothing from yesteryear, sample foods cooked by 14 different vendors or pack your own picnic.
Area crafters also will be on hand, selling art works, jewelry and more. On stage, you will see and hear entertainment on the hour.
Take the opportunity to tour the historic farmhouse and exhibits. If you tire of walking, hop on the hay wagon for a ride. Stay after dark as the Jaycees stage its "sky spectacular" fireworks.
