Friday Night Concert Series continues this Friday July 13th at 6:30pm with Southampton, MA-based The Standing Bear Band, a fun and free spirited jam band that has been very popular on the brewery and festival circuit over the past few years.

Wilder, best known for penning the Little House on the Prairie books, had adventures on the American frontier that have captivated the imaginations of children for well over 100 years, whether on the written page or via the popular television series based on her books. Different 19th century activities will take place throughout the day, so guests can enjoy a whole day of fun or participate in a few favorites. All will be inspired by the Little House books, like washing laundry on a washboard. Visitors can also play oldfashioned prairie games on the Village green, learn about foraging on the frontier, and make corn husk dolls. Bring your best detective skills because this year

will include a new scavenger hunt and anyone who completes the hunt will receive a small prize. The day’s special guest will be Laura Ingalls historical interpreter, Rosalie Silliman. She will give two presentations, including one in the Village’s one-room schoolhouse, for a taste of what Laura’s life was like as a schoolteacher. Tickets for Little House Family Day are $8 in advance via (through 7/13/18) or $10 on the day of the event. All chil-

dren must be accompanied by an adult. For more information, visit storrowtonvillage. com/p/tours-and-events/littlehouse-family-day or call 413205-5051.
