The Museums of Western Colorado will celebrate the 30th annual Spring Day on the Farm May 7th at the Cross Orchards Historic Site in Grand Junction.

Spring Day on the Farm is a great family event which marks the official opening of the site for the summer season. The event goes from 9AM until 3PM.

The day features lots of old-time demonstrations including blacksmithing and woodworking, plus a variety of booths and vendors. It's like stepping back in time with historic buildings, equipment, and costumes.
