Plowing Play Day set

Draft horses and mules will pull plows and wagons May 18 at the 31th annual Plowing Play Day at Jack London State Park.

The day will feature plowing and harnessing demonstrations, free wagon rides, sheep shearing, blacksmiths, early day gas engines and medieval horseback skills. Food will be offered for sale.

Members of the North Coast Draft Horse and Mule Association will bring mules and their Clydesdale, Percheron, Shire and Belgian draft horses.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The only fee is $10 to enter the park.
