HARRISBURG, AR (KAIT) - Parker Pioneer Homestead hosted their annual festival on Saturday and Sunday.
The event showcased old-fashioned attractions like sorghum making, broom making, and much more.
The festival had activities that people of all ages enjoyed.
"There's a lot of history here," said festival worker, Mike Murphy.
"There's horse rides and there's rides on the buggies and things like that." added Hester Spradling, a festival worker. "They can play a lot of the old-fashioned games where they roll the hoops with a stick, horseshoes, slingshots."
Also available for public viewing were restored pieces of farm equipment and log cabins.
Some of the festival workers dressed in pioneer-style clothing while others performed a Civil War reenactment.
According to Murphy, the festival had a record-breaking crowd on Saturday.
For anyone who missed out on the fun this week, the festival will be held again on Oct. 15 and 16.
