The 2008 Heritage Festival Kids' Corner was packed with creative, hands-on activities and fun. There were also many family-friendly performances and activities, including model trains at the American Legion and the giant climbing wall and Travelin’ Barnyard on the waterfront.
All children's activities were ongoing, from 10-4 each, day unless otherwise noted.
