Find out if you have what it takes during a race around Historic Stewart Farm for the annual Fabulous Farm Race on August 10 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“This isn’t your typical race or scavenger hunt,” said Curator Jerrilin Spence, of the free all-ages event that challenges teams to partake in actual chores and activities of yesteryear.
“Come out and experience what it’s like to actually do laundry the old-fashioned way, tie a knot like a true sailor, guess the cooking ingredient using only your sense of smell, and so much more!”
Teams must register at the welcome table by 2 p.m. to ensure a spot. Each group is clocked in and out at the registration table. The winning team clocks the shortest completion time.
Visitors 12 and under are encouraged to bring their Heritage Kids Passport – or pick one up at the day of, or before the event, if they haven’t yet already.
“Kids, if you’re taking part in the passport challenge too, the event offers multiple stamping opportunities and a special coupon to help your team get a competitive edge during the race.”
The Historic Stewart Farm is located at 13723 Crescent Rd. in South Surrey. Additional parking is located in the west parking lot of Elgin Heritage Park, approximately 400 metres west of the main entrance.
Site hours are Tuesday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. Entrance is by donation. For more information call 604-592-6956 or visit www.surrey.ca/heritage. Follow the farm on Facebook @HeritageSurrey and Instagram @StewartFarmBC.
