Along with the museum exhibit, there will be a pioneer wagon and schoolhouse display, and special horse-drawn wagon rides.

The bakery, BBQ, picnic grounds and wildlands trails at Los Rios Rancho will be open both days from 10a.m. – 5 p.m. The bakery will be featuring cider floats and apple hand pies.
