MASON CITY, Iowa – Organizers of the Kids Day event at Kinney Pioneer Museum say Sunday’s event had the best attendance yet.
It’s likely the picture-perfect weather conditions played a part. More than 200 people turned out to enjoy an afternoon of old-time fun, including beanbag toss, potato sack races, train rides, magic show, and opportunities to write with a quill and inkwell.
“One of the things I think that makes it important is that it gives kids a feel for (how) some of their parents and grandparents… lived back when they were children,” said museum board chair Richard Peterson. “And I think that does a great deal for the kids today.”
The museum’s next major event is Cider and Donut Day on September 29.
