This is the Place State Park is an authentic pioneer village with many fun and educational activities. Ride the train, dip candles, see a real old fashion printing press at work, visit an Indian village or take a pony ride. The park is offering a substantial discount to families attending The AYLI family festival, only $2 a person! The normal entrance fee is $6 per child and $8 per adult. (Let’s do some math! A mom and 5 children would cost $32 normally. Come to the AYLI Family Festival and get in for $12!) The park opens at 9:00 am, so come make a day out of it. If you’ve always wanted to see the park, now is your chance!
