Get up close to draft horses and meet the teamsters. Listen to the country music of Vernon Bishop and the Moose River Band. Enter your kids in all sorts of fun competitions to win cheap but fabulous prizes. Be mystified by the sideline magic of the Amazing Charles. Ride to the logging camp in a horse-drawn wagon.
