Bring the family and watch a heritage restoration of a stone wall. Free dry stone workshops for kids. Tour Barriefield Village and St. Mark's, see the stone carving demos or drop in to the School Museum. There's lots to see and do.
As in other years, there was a special children's walling activity again this year, both days at the Barriefield dry stone wall festival, involving the creating of lots of miniature 'dry pebble' walls, huts, and bridges. Parents were invited to watch, but really, this was a 'Kids Only' part of the festival. http://www.dswa.ca/event/dry-stone-canada-2017-festival
On the weekend of June 10 and 11, volunteers and students taking a unique Dry Stone Walling Across Canada sculpture workshop rallied together to build a commemorative tree at the Ennismore Robert E Young Complex . Read about it on the 'completed events' page

Who would have ever thought when we were making it back in 2010, that there would come a time Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, would one day step through our Dry Stone Walling Across Canada dry stone arch at Landon Bay Park?
