Archeology Fair

Every October, on a very special Saturday, the Whitehead Museum, 1308 South Main Street in Del Rio, Texas becomes host to a magical event. History comes to life! You can step back in time to enjoy the old lifeways. Make adobe bricks. See cavalry and the Camel Corps. Roll corn into corn meal on a stone. Create cordage and painted pebbles similar to what the Ancient People of the Pecos Region made thousands of years ago. These and many more exciting activities await you!

The 12th Annual Archeology Fair will be held on October 6, 2012 from 10 am to 3 pm.

Admission for the event is $2 per adult and $1 per child.
