Heritage Day is May 12th!

Monday, May 7, 2018 - 9:49am
Medoc Mountain Heritage Day 2018

Did you know that there is a man who fought in the Civil War that used to call Medoc Mountain State Park home?  Come to Heritage Day to hear all about Mr. Harper’s life before, during, and after the Civil War when he lived among the woods that are now Medoc Mountain State Park.  Even though there were no battles near the park during the Civil War, this is a great learning opportunity for visitors to experience what a Civil War Calvary camp was like. Cavalry Reenactors from the 6th Virginia Cavalry Company "F" will be at Heritage Day (with a horse!) teaching visitors about the Civil War life and providing demonstrations.
 
Motor racing has always been popular in the area, and continues to this day with Clary's Motor Speedway next to the park. Before the racing stars of today were on television, they started out racing on dirt tracks for local racing teams, like Buddy Isles Racing Team from Littleton. Buddy Isles Racing Team will be at Heritage Day talking about racing and will have one of their race cars available for people to inspect and take pictures with!
 
The Friends of the Littleton Library will be on site promoting literacy and will offer a children’s story time throughout the event. There will be games and activities for everyone to participate in, including an opportunity to make corn husk dolls with Park Ranger Dr. Roy Austin. Don’t forget to bring your cash to purchase food and drinks while you’re enjoying your day.

Heritage Day will be held on Saturday, May 12th and will begin at 10 a.m. Campsites are still available for the weekend, but don’t wait to make reservations as campsites will go quickly! Be sure to check back  for a lineup of events. We hope that you can Make It To The Mountain!
