Heritage Mica Days Ready to Go!

Don’t let grey and dismal winter days get you down – think about all the fun you’ll have at Heritage Mica Days for 2013!

The planners of this annual event have prepared an action-packed schedule of events to keep everyone busy from June through Thanksgiving. Heritage Mica Days takes place at Murphys Point Provincial Park located about 20 minutes south west of Perth and easily accessed by County Road 21 (Elm Grove Road).

“You are sure to find an activity that meets the needs of your family,” said Beth Peterkin, the festival’s event coordinator with the Friends of Murphys Point Park. “From open house tours of the Silver Queen Mine with costumed interpreters and heritage displays to a wide variety of music and food events and the popular Dinner/Theatre, there is so much to see and do.”

Visit the restored ore wagon and the horses that have joined this display since last season. Chow down on some corn on the cob at the campfire pit. Sit back and enjoy the call of the loons who accompany musical guests at the outdoor amphitheatre. Meet the spirits of the Silver Queen Mine on the ever-popular evening Spirit Walks or simply relax on the beach and enjoy one of the BBQ lunches or pancake brunches.

Also, be sure to check out the newly developed Heritage Mica Days festival website at www.heritagemicadays.ca, where you can find a complete detailed listing of all scheduled festival events, as well as event history and information about the Silver Queen Mine and the Friends. You can also browse the calendar pages to easily see which days have festival activities scheduled. There is an opportunity to become a “Mica Mate” and you can purchase tickets for festival events securely through the website with the PayPal program. Check the website frequently as updates will be made when new activities or musicians are booked.
