Frontier Homestead State Park is set to hold their annual Iron Mission Days celebration on Saturday, Nov. 11 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

The annual event was created to honor the founders of Cedar City and their sacrifices for the community. Ryan Paul, museum curator, said the event connects visitors to this history.

“Our mission is to connect people to the traditions, knowledge and ideas of the past,” Paul said. “… We want people to have fun, but we also want people to understand the place that they live in.”

The event will host family activities, including making rope and rag dolls and pitching horseshoes. Entertainment features history demonstrations including tomahawk throwing, baking bread in a wood-fired oven and dipping candles.

Entrance to the event is $5 per family and museum membership holders get in for free. Frontier Homestead State Park is located at 635 N. Main Street. For more information visit their website or call them at 435-586-9290.
