pioneer days

The 43rd annual Pioneer Days will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 27 at Cannonsburgh Village.

Live music, clogging, pottery and blacksmith demonstrations, hayrides, craft vendors, food trucks and an art exhibit are just a few of the activities planned for the day.

Visitors will have the opportunity to talk with staff and volunteers who will be dressed in period costume. Riverchase Posse will perform a gun-slinging show, and 1800s working Steam Engine will be on site.

More than 65 craft vendors are scheduled to show and sell their wares, and refreshments will be available for purchase from food trucks, including Big G Express, The Dawg Bar, Honky Tonk Café and Get Poppin.

In addition to the heritage activities, Rutherford Parent magazine will be on hand with additional activities, including bounce houses, a mini train ride and other attractions. Free bike helmets donated by local attorney John Day will be given to the first 500 children in attendance.

The Murfreesboro Lions Club will also have their annual great Pancake Breakfast that morning from 7 a.m. -11 a.m. in the clubhouse with a donation of $9 for adults and $5 for children 6-12. Children under the age of 6 eat free at the breakfast. All funds are used to buy glasses for needed elementary school-age children in our community.
