The Ides of March...

There's no reason to "beware the Ides of March" this year! We've got a fun event planned for March 15th that we've affectionately dubbed "man day" at Log Cabin Village. Women are very much encouraged to participate, however, so come join our celebration of the 19th century "manly arts." Here's the scoop:

Saturday, March 15, 2008: Strike While the Iron’s Hot! Log Cabin Village, 2100 Log Cabin Village Lane, Fort Worth. 817.392.5881. 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. $3.00 for ages 4-17 and seniors, $3.50 for ages 18 and up, 3 and under free. ($2 additional charge to stamp leather). Experience life before hardware and lumber stores! See the blacksmith hand-forge unique creations, take a turn working wood at the shaving horse, help plow the field, and make your own stamped leather craft to take home. This day is for do-it-yourselfers! No reservations required.

If a casual story with 15-30 of your closest friends (if your friends are in the toddler/preschool set) seems more your style, then join us on March 14th for a tale in the Marine Schoolhouse:

Friday, March 14, 2008: Timber Tales Preschool Storytime Log Cabin Village, 2100 Log Cabin Village Lane, Fort Worth. 817.392.5881. 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. $3.00 for participating children, $2.00 for adults. Featured story: The Quilt Story by Tony Johnston. Bring your 3-5 year old to the Village for an exciting step back into the world of 1800s Texas! Little "Villagers" can don bonnets, aprons, and vests as they gather 'round to hear stories of days gone by. $3 fee includes a preschool story, fun activities, and a craft. Please call 817-392-6769 to make your reservation (required).

We hope to see you at one (or both) of these fun events! Be watching the blog for some cool blacksmithing talk with one of our talented blacksmiths, Michael Garrett.
