Autumn Pioneer Festival kicks off in Belvidere


It's time for some family fun on a beautiful weekend and the Boone County Conservation District in Belvidere is inviting the public to the 33rd annual Autumn Pioneer Festival.

It's a chance for people to travel back to the 1800s and learn the lifestyles and crafts of that period in America. It's also a way for the public to learn about different cultures and customers.

"I have over 70 camps of lace makers, gun makes, period crafts. We also have food vendors out here, period sarsaparilla, root beer, roasted corn, It's a good time," says Roger Gustafson.

It's at the Roger Gustafson Nature Center and Festival Grounds in Belvidere. The hours are 9 to 5 on Saturday and 10 to 4 on Sunday. Admission is free.
