10th Annual Pow Wow at Turpentine Creek

Thursday, May 29, 2008

For Father's Day weekend, give Dad an experience the entire family will love: a day at the annual Native American Festival and Pow-wow, June 13-15, on the grounds of Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge.

  In addition to the spellbinding performance of native dance, the weekend also offers craft booths, drumming, artists, wildlife exhibits and a Color Guard. The craft booths will open at 3 p.m. on Friday, and 10 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday to give visitors a chance to mingle, meet the crafters, and shop. The main event takes place in the afternoon and evening: Grand Entry of the dancers is at 7 p.m. Friday; 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday; and 1 p.m. Sunday. Other activities will be held throughout the day, and food and drink concessions will be on hand as well. Tickets are $5 for a one-day pass, or $10 for the entire weekend; children age 3 and under are admitted free. Proceeds from the weekend assist in the construction of natural habitats for the big cats of Turpentine Creek.

  So go out, show Dad a good time, and chip in for a tiger's new home.

  Turpentine Creek is located on Hwy 23 South, just seven miles from town. For more info, visit www.turpentinecreek.org, or call (479) 253-5841.
