HCT&CA is proud to once again offer the Heritage Weekend Passport. Pick up passports at any of the welcome centers.
This passport is designed to enhance and enrich your visit to Hardy County, becoming your personal travel record with the stamps and notes of your visit experience. Not only is the book fun, but it is a great educational tool to turn a day at the festival into a lesson about the History of Hardy County and more. Some teachers will be giving extra credit for participating in passport activities.
Look in the Official Heritage Weekend Booklet to find the clues on where to find the locations, times and activities to receive your stamps. Bring your passport back to a Welcome Center before 3pm on Sept. 29th with 10 or more stamps and receive a special prize. All completers will also be entered into a Grand Prize Drawing for an Amazon Kindle Fire.
The Moorefield Examiner Heritage Weekend Supplement will contain information of a coloring contest with a picture of a spinning wheel. Children are encouraged to enter the contest by coloring the spinning wheel and returning the picture to one of the welcome centers no later than September 30, at 3 pm. Age groups are 6 and under and 7 to 14. A winner will be selected from each group to win an Amazon Kindle Fire.
Rag dolls are a favorite old-time toy for children. They were easy to make from scrap material. Money was tight in pioneer days, so rag dolls were made from whatever was left over from sewing projects. We welcome you to come make your own rag doll at Moorefield High School on Saturday September 28th. Kits to make the dolls will be $4 and will include everything needed to make the craft.
