Compass Inn Museum 'Children's Weekend' features petting zoo

Wednesday, June 12, 2013, 7:33 p.m.

The Ligonier Valley Historical Society will present a Children's Weekend at Compass Inn Museum 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday.

A petting zoo will be conducted on the grounds on Saturday with a variety of farm animals from Living Treasures Animal Park in Donegal.

“This the second year for petting zoo. It was a big hit with the children,” said Tina Yandrick executive director of the historical society.

A guided tour of the restored 1799 stagecoach stop will be geared towards the younger visitors. There will be hands-on activities for the children and 18th-century crafters, including a blacksmith and baking demonstrations in the cook house.

Children's Weekend activities will be included with the paid admission to the museum. Admission is $9 for adults, $6 for children; 5 and under are complimentary.
