In addition to this great quilt show, the Poway Parks is coordinating an “Old Fashioned Fourth of July” at the Old Poway Park. From 10am to 4pm this free event will have plenty of entertainment for all ages. And definitely going to provide fun for everyone. There will be live musical entertainment in the Gazebo throughout the day. The Poway Station Model Railroad Club will display model trains. The Poway-Midland Railroad Volunteers will give rides aboard the steam locomotive for a fee of $0.50 for children and $2.50 for adults. Historical gun fighting re-enactors will perform mock train robberies and gunfights. The Heritage Museum and Nelson House will be open with patriotic and educational décor and memorabilia. The Park’s blacksmiths will be demonstrating iron making and forging metal into useful tools. The Poway Arts and Crafts Guild will be providing demonstrations and selling their one-of-a-kind handmade crafts. Children’s activities will be offered such as face painting, arts and crafts, and old-fashioned games. There will be plenty of lunch items and treats for sale such as an old-fashioned picnic lunch, traditional ice cream social, and more.

While there are many wonderful bands that will be playing during the day, my favorite is the Pomerado Community Band. This band will be playing at 3pm. http://www.pomeradoband.org/
