The North Coast Draft Horse and Mule Association presents its annual Plowing Play Day on Sunday, May 21, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Jack London State Historic Park.
The family event features historic farming practices that include plowing and mowing demonstrations as well as free wagon rides around the historic ranch buildings. Enjoy learning about mules along with Clydesdale, Percheron, Shire, and Belgian draft horses.
Demonstrations include blacksmithing, horseshoeing, historic gas engines and more. Visitors can travel back in time and experience real live horsepower at the Beauty Ranch, home of the famous author Jack London, who also raised English Shire draft horses.
The park entry fee of $10 per vehicle includes all activities. Food and beverages will be available for purchase or bring your own picnic lunch to enjoy in the park.
Jack London State Historic Park is located at 2400 London Ranch Road in Glen Ellen.
