Panhandle Pioneer Settlement to Host First Annual “Keepers of the Old Ways” Event

Job :

BLOUNTSTOWN, Fla. (WMBB) – The Panhandle Pioneer Settlement is gearing up for its first annual “Keepers of the Old Ways” event.

The Survival Exhibit will teach attendees about the daily lifestyle of the pioneer era.

“Even if our ancestors had to, many of the skills taught can even be used now and could come in handy during natural disasters where you need to know survival tactics,” said event coordinator Jessica Bracewell.

Some of the classes taught at the event include soap making, candle making, campfire cooking, and teaching natural medicine.

There will also be opportunities to interact with live animals, horse-drawn carriages, and ax throwing. The axes will be inflatable for young children.

The event will take place on Friday, January 28 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and again on Saturday, January 29 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Panhandle Pioneer Settlement in Blountstown, located in Sam Atkins Park.

Tickets are $10 for adults for one day and $15 for two-day admission. Senior discounts are available and admission is free for children 12 and under. Tickets can be purchased here.
