The daylong event from 8 a.m. till 11 p.m. at Yunker Farm and across the street at the Oaks Recreation Center at 10925 W. LaPorte Road had activities for the whole family.
It seems that the old fashion agricultural lifestyle still has a certain appeal to a 21st century audience. The sheep shearing and blacksmith demonstrations made the crowd hungry for buttery corn and hot dogs.
The Mokena Park District sponsored the annual event that included sheep shearing, tree climbing, sing alongside and more.
Sue Park of Frankfort brought her grandsons 3-year-old Tyler and 11-month-old Max McMahon of New Lenox. "We came out for the rides," she said.
Tyler seemed to favor the miniature golf and enjoyed the petting zoo.
A multitude of shoppers worked their way through the crowd to find that special "find" at the outdoor flea market. Others are waiting until nightfall to enjoy country performers Sean Skyler Duo and the featured band, Crazy Talk, from Frankfort.
