Quesnel and District Antique Machinery Park hosting Family Day Aug. 18

The park features a blacksmith shop and sawmill and other technology used in the mid 1800s to 1900s

“The Young and the Old?”

“The Old and the New?”

Whatever we choose to title the afternoon, it involved laughter and smiles and a little bit of education!!

Girls just wanna have fun! And on Monday afternoon, the Quesnel Ambassadors went out to the Antique Machinery Park (AMP) and had a lot of fun!!

Quesnel Ambassadors Hailey Murray, Nalyssa Runge and Sydney Williams arrived with smiles and plenty of wardrobe changes ready to help promote the AMP. With Photos by Brenda in charge of just the right backdrop, dozens and dozens of pictures were taken. The whole intent was really meant to highlight all the old equipment (trucks, tractors, graders and much more) and the buildings at the Park as they get things all ready for their Family Day this Sunday, Aug. 18. However, the girls were really the highlight of the afternoon.

The Quesnel and District Antique Machinery Park is located 12 kilometres south of Quesnel at 3055 Dragon Lake Rd. It is operated by a volunteer association that is dedicated to the preservation and restoration of machinery that helped to develop our region.

The park features a fully operational blacksmith shop and sawmill and other technology used in the mid 1800s to 1900s for mining, forestry, transportation and agriculture. The shop and sawmill will have demonstrations periodically throughout the year.

The park is open Friday through Tuesday during the summer months (June to August), or by appointment during the rest of the year.

For more information or to book an appointment, call 250-747-4621.

The Antique Machinery Park is the perfect setting for wedding photos, family reunions, class reunions, whatever you choose!

Looking for a wedding venue? Check it out!

Looking to hold a reunion? Check it out! There’s plenty of parking!

This Sunday, Aug. 18, is Family Day at the Antique Machinery Park from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.!

Come for some fun, some food (Craig’s Table will be in attendance), some fine company, live demonstrations and more than a little bit of a history lesson!!

See you there!
