Celebrate the 75th birthday of Sky Meadows by enjoying live music, free cake and homemade ice cream. Visit a special exhibit at the park’s new picnic area to learn the history of Virginia State Parks as well as the past, present and future of Sky Meadows in particular. You’ll also find the kids crafts station there, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., where you can make a take-home artifact. From 1 to 4 p.m., stop by the historic Mount Bleak House for a docent-led tour. At 3 p.m. learn about geocaching, a worldwide outdoor treasure hunt that uses GPS technology. Union First Market Bank and Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast Inn are event sponsors.
