April 27, 6–7 p.m. – A Side of History: They Wore What?! at Historic Yates Mill County Park
Corsets, crinolines, and kepis, oh my! Though milling processes haven`t changed that much since the mill at Historic Yates Mill County Park was built in the 1760s, the way people dress sure has. Stop by Historic Yates Mill to make your own fashion timeline, try on some colonial clothes, explore the park’s historic costume collection and play a round or two of “They Wore WHAT?!” This program is for ages 8 years and up, and all children must be accompanied by an adult. The program fee is $1 per person and preregistration is required. Historic Yates Mill County Park is located at 4620 Lake Wheeler Road, Raleigh.
