Round Rock’s Old Settlers Association Hosts 17th Pioneer Day
The Williamson Museum is excited to present the 17th annual Pioneer Days at Old Settlers Association in Round Rock, and invites all members of the public to join in the festivities free of charge. Sponsored in part by the City of Round Rock, the event will take place on Saturday, May 6, from 10 am to 3 pm, and promises a day filled with music, history, and fun activities for families and friends alike.
Old Settlers Association, located at 3300 E. Palm Valley Blvd. across Harrell Parkway from The Salt Lick BBQ, will be transformed into a veritable time machine, transporting visitors back to a bygone era when the pioneers first ventured westward. Enthusiasts of all ages will have the opportunity to learn about pioneer life, take part in fun and interactive activities, and even make their very own candles and churn butter.
Strolling through reenactment camps and chuck wagon areas, guests will also have a chance to experience some of the pioneering spirit that drove westward expansion and shaped American history. But history isn’t the only attraction at the Pioneer Days – live music, pioneer games, and tours of historic houses are only a few of the many wonders waiting to be discovered.
No experience of pioneer life would be complete without a visit to a fully stocked general store – where visitors might just find some authentic goodies to take home. With so much to offer, this year’s Pioneer Days promises to be a fantastic event that no one should miss.
As a further enticement, the City of Round Rock has kindly provided an array of colorful images that are sure to pique visitors’ interest and whet their appetite for some good old-fashioned fun. So mark your calendars for Saturday, May 6, and don’t neglect the chance to experience the 17th annual Pioneer Days at Old Settlers Association in Round Rock.
