Living History Farms welcomes dogs to the museum any day of the season, and we’d love to see dogs and owners this Saturday! Bring your well-behaved pup to take a tractor cart ride over to the west side of the museum, walk the trail and visit each of our three working farm sites, and enjoy fun canine-themed activities in the 1876 Town of Walnut Hill!

Mission Uproar Flyball

9:30 & 10:30 a.m.
Cheer on four-dog relay teams in this exciting, fast-paced canine sport. Demonstrations last just 15 minutes, so don’t be late!

See a demonstration by Duke and Luna, the Belgian malinois brother and sister who serve on the Altoona Police Department.

Windsor Heights Fire Department

1 p.m.
Meet-and-greet (and photo ops!) with Ember, the Windsor Heights Fire Department dog.

IOWA Service Dogs

2 p.m.
Learn how IOWA Service Dogs trains service dogs for first responders and veterans—and how you can use their techniques with your own dog.

Historic Baseball

3 p.m.
Watch the origins of “America’s Greatest Pastime” by catching a Walnut Hill Bluestockings game played by 1870s rules.
