Have you ever wanted to go back to simpler times? By today’s standards pioneer weddings were modest affairs. Join us as we delve into wedding traditions of the 19th-century, and learn about some of the origins of practices popularized then, and now. We invite you to dress in wedding attire (does your dress/suit still fit?) and if you got married at Lang, please bring your wedding photo for a fun photo opportunity today! As a special treat, we will be joined by members of the Ontario Artist Blacksmith Association, who will show us the surprising way that blacksmiths were connected to weddings of old. Admission: Adults $15, Students/Seniors (60+) $10, Youths (ages 5-14) $7, Free for children under 5, Family (includes 2 adults and up to 4 youths ages 5-14) $40
