History FestMcGowan's Farm http://historyfestmankato.com
History Fest is held the second weekend of October at Jack McGowan’s farm outside of Mankato. It’s a wonderful weekend of historical, hands-on education and recreation. From the 17th century re-enactments to fire eaters, belly dancers, and cannon shooting, the festival offers a taste of the past to kids and adults of all ages. The event and all the activities within it are designed to teach children about the past in an engaging manner. This is a day of storytelling, singing, dancing, playing and learning.
