Saturday To-Do: Territorial Fair

TERRITORIAL FAIR
10 a.m., Historic Arkansas Museum, free.

This year's theme, borrowed from Arkansas Heritage month, is “Only in Arkansas.” You know, like “only in Arkansas do we get excited about ‘pioneer games' and women in bonnets.” Joking. The Territorial Fair should be a staple for Central Arkansas families of all ages and sizes. Pioneer games are really fun. Rolling hoops, jumping rope, walking on stilts — all surprisingly fun. Watching grown-ups, in pioneer attire, fiddle or cook pioneer food or blacksmith or lead tours — also surprisingly fun. Less fun, but props to the museum for giving it a whirl: white-washing the backyard fence with “Tom Sawyer.” Hopefully, Tom takes a nap under a tree after a while. The fair, which will have food and crafts for sale, continues until 4 p.m.
