TUPELO, MS: The Natchez Trace Parkway invites children and their families to come and enjoy "Animal Masquerade," a special Junior Ranger program held at the Parkway Visitor Center on Saturday, May 7, 2016 at 10:00 am. There are all types of animals, big and small, that call the Natchez Trace Parkway home. Join a park ranger for this 45-minute program to discover how animals depend on each other for survival. You will also be able to make an animal mask of your favorite Natchez Trace animal. This program is ideal for children seven to 12 years old, but everyone is welcome.

The North Mississippi Dulcimer Association will also provide dulcimer music from10:00 am to 1:00 pm. The Appalachian mountain dulcimer is the first instrument developed in the United States. Dating back to the early 1800s, the dulcimer is an instrument whose very name means "sweet sound." The North Mississippi Dulcimer Association teaches dulcimer history, tradition, craftsmanship, and music by sharing its knowledge and talents.

All programs are free to the public. The Natchez Trace Parkway Visitor Center is located at milepost 266 on the Natchez Trace Parkway, near Tupelo, Mississippi. For additional information, please call (662) 680-4027 or (800) 305-7417.
