Old fashioned carnival games for all ages will be featured at Stephansson House Provincial Historic Site on Sunday during their annual Harvest Fair and Penny Carnival.
Activities take place from noon to 5 p.m. at the site just northwest of Markerville.
The afternoon will also include fresh baking samples from Helga Stephansson’s wood-burning stove, items for sale by local vendors, historical craft demonstrations and a chance to discover the historic house with costumed interpreters on hand to answer questions, said Andrea Murray, a historical interpreter at the site.
There’s also a “guess the number of currents in the giant astarbollur” contest. Astarbollur is an Icelandic pastry.
Don’t forget your pennies so you can enjoy the carnival games.
Admission is $3 for adults, $8 for a family (two adults and their children ages 7-17), $2 for seniors and $2 for youth (ages 7-17). Children six and under free.
Stephansson House is located seven kilometres north of Markerville, off secondary highways 781 and 592 (20 minutes south of Sylvan Lake).
