Watch pioneer demonstrations, including blacksmithing, tomahawk throwing and the operation of an oxen-powered 1850 haypress, during O'Bannon Woods State Park's Labor Day Weekend events, on Aug. 31 and Sept 1.

Activities take place at Hickory Hollow Interpretive Center from 10 am to 3 pm.

Other activities will include a "primitive dunking booth," and demonstrations of leather working, hewing a log, weaving, quilting, and spinning. Visitors can also see a pioneer home, trappers shed and cooper shop.

The event is free after paying the regular park gate entrance fee of $7 per in-state vehicle and $9 per out-of-state vehicle.

In addition, this will be the last weekend to visit our Aquatic Center and Wyandotte Caves as both will close their season on Labor Day.
