Heritage Mica Days Aug. 3 & 4th, 2014

Bob and Jeff at the BBQ

Heritage Mica Days is excited to bring to you three fabulous events taking place during the August long weekend at Murphys Point Provincial Park. First come on out Sunday August 3rd from 10 a.m. to 12 noon to our Silver Queen Mine Open House Tour where you can explore the mine at your own pace and participate in our Junior Mica Miner program. Over 150 young miners have been certified, will you be next?

Later that evening join us for the David Archibald concert at the amphitheatre starting at 8 p.m. David has played at numerous National and Provincial Parks across Ontario and we are thrilled to welcome him back to Murphys Point! He has written for and performed on Sesame Street in New York and CBC’s Mr. Dressup.

On August 4th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. we will be celebrating the long weekend at the beach with a big BBQ featuring local food and a variety of activities to suit all tastes and ages. You can participate in the sandcastle contest (with prizes for each group), check out our story reading tent, challenge yourself at the heritage games, and get your face painted. As a special treat, Temple’s Sugar Bush will be on hand with maple taffy on snow ($2). You can’t beat that for an August long weekend!

Heritage Mica Days takes place at Murphys Point Provincial Park located about 20 minutes southwest of Perth and easily accessed by County Road 21 (Elm Grove Road).
