New this year Just Us Games: Old time kids arcade.
" Games for kids with prizes. Duck pond, Pig Race,
Mini SkeeBall, Twinkleplink, Ziggy Disc."When children had time to play, they played some of the same games we still play today – like tag, hide-and-seek, and hopscotch. There were no factories for making toys, and store-bought toys were very expensive. Children or adults made most toys from things they could find outside or in the house. They made dolls out of cornhusks and rags. Small pieces of wood and leftover string could be used to make spinning tops. Sometimes they made up games that needed no equipment at all.
The Yellow River Festival offers plenty of old-time fun for children and
the young-at-heart alike. Just step back in time
and leave your electronic devices at home, we are
going to do something different! Some events you
could be experiencing from the good old 1800s:
fishing, monkey bridge, shoot skillets, corn hole,
collar throw, rope maze, leather projects and more.
