DOTHAN, Ala. -- Spring Farm Day, a celebration of rural and farm life, is expected to draw almost 3,000 to Dothan's Landmark Park on Saturday, March 21, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The event will feature demonstrations of such skills and traditions as plowing with mules, blacksmithing, sheep shearing, weaving, quilting, and more. Guests will also be treated to music, concessions and children's activities.

Landmark Park, a 100-acre outdoor museum three miles north of Dothan's Ross Clark Circle on U.S. 431, serves as "Alabama's Official Museum of Agriculture" and includes an 1890s living history farmstead, a "crossroads community" with turn-of-the-century buildings such as a church, one-room school, general store and drugstore. In addition, the park includes nature trails, wildlife exhibits, an elevated boardwalk and planetarium.

Spring Farm Day is co-hosted by the Alabama Cooperative Extension System and CenturyTel and is sponsored by the Houston County Farmers Federation, WTVY, WDJR, WOOF-FM, SunSouth and Perry's Music.

Artists and craftsmen are invited to participate in Spring Farm Day's arts and crafts exhibits. Work may be in any medium, but must be the original work and design of the artist. Purchased, manufactured or kit items will not be allowed. Fee is $40 for a 12-foot by 12-foot outside space. Reservation deadline is March 13. Reservations can be made in person at Landmark Park, by mail or fax. All applications are subject to approval by the Spring Farm Day committee..

Admission to Spring Farm Day is $8 for adults, $6 for seniors, $4 for children and free for park members. For more information about Spring Farm Day, visit www.LandmarkPark.com or call (334) 794-3452. For exhibit information, call (334) 794-3452 or e-mail kathie@landmarkpark.com.
