Perhaps you’ve driven by The Landing in Shakopee. Located on the edge of town with beautiful old buildings. Like most things, their regular events and programs have been on hold or canceled.
We received notice the have a couple of upcoming free events. Registration required and of course some changes to how things will take place but there’s is excitement here at our house as we enjoy The Landing.
Keep in mind since the Landing has been closed up and not able to offer their normal in person events that these are filling up fast. We really enjoy their theme events, especially the ones in the fall.
Typically they have people walking around in full period appropriate costumes. Our girls have always enjoyed history and to be able to walk around and feel it in person has had a great impact.
The First event is Meet the Farm Animals!
July 12, 23, 27, 30, and 31 – 11 AM, 1 PM, and 3 PM
Walk with a historical interpreter to meet furry, fluffy and feathered farm animals. Learn about historic farming in the Minnesota River Valley. Reservations are required. For health reasons, participants ages 13 years and younger must be accompanied by an adult from the same household. Advance registration required here.
Next will be Parks and Petals: Garden Walk
July 25 and 28 — 11 AM, 1 PM, and 3 PM
Walk with a historical interpreter through various gardens and learn about their different roles and uses in the 19th century. Each tour differs based on what is in bloom. Reservations required. Each tour is approximately one hour long. For health reasons, participants ages 13 years and younger must be accompanied by an adult from the same household. Advanced registration required here.
Have you been to the Landing for an event in the past? Our favorite has been their candlelight events and I do hope we will see more things offered in the upcoming weeks and months.
