Physical distancing has got us all down, but the good news is that plans are well underway for a season full of safe, entertaining, and affordable activities in the fresh air and open space of Huble Homestead Historic Site.
With the safety of the community the number one priority, things will look a little different this summer at the homestead. Though the park’s season usually begins on the Victoria Day long weekend, this year’s opening will be postponed into early June, once public health restrictions have eased. With public events cancelled, Huble Homestead’s popular events program is also on pause, but that doesn’t mean there will be nothing to do!
Staff are working hard to change and adapt demonstrations and educational offerings to accommodate physical distancing. Visit this summer to participate in one of the daily self-led activities, ranging from treasure hunts to I Spy games to themed history passport adventures. Take a personal guided tour or explore on your own with a new paperless self-guided tour. Stop in at the General Store to browse locally made items or place your old-fashioned candy order online for pick-up during your visit. Bring a picnic and enjoy the green space, sign out a lawn game to play with your party, visit with the animals, and take a gander at the garden.
Good old-fashioned fun is timeless, and Huble Homestead has you covered this summer. Keep on top of official opening news, activity schedules, and more at hublehomestead.ca.
