WINONA, Minn. — It’s the 20th year for the Big Muddy River Rendezvous at Prairie Island Campground in Winona, reports WXOW.com. The event, which runs through Sunday, teaches kids about the way life was in the fur-trading era of the 1840s.
Kids get their hand at axe throwing, candle making, and learning about guns, fur, and other living commodities of the time.
“We try to show the little guys from the schools that this is the way your forefathers lived, and it wasn’t an easy life,” said Jan Johnson, who goes by “Grandma Jan.”
