Thursday, September 11, 2008
The 24th annual Indian Festival will be held Friday and Saturday at Resurgence Properties, formerly Bassett-Walker, at 405 Walker Road, Martinsville.
Ryan Barber, director of marketing and external affairs for the Virginia Museum of Natural History, sponsor of the festival, said the site was changed due to the wet conditions of the field at the original site at the Martinsville Middle School.
Friday will be student day at the festival, in which area students will learn about Indian heritage and culture.
The festival will be open to the public from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday.
This is the last Indian Festival to be held by the museum. Next year, a folklife festival is being planned
