Enjoy a day of fun and learning at the city’s Heritage Day Picnic on Saturday, June 11 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Lots of activities will be available at the free event, including gold panning biscuit baking in a chuck wagon, tours of the Orton Englehardt Workshop, Hamilton House tours, a petting zoo, hay jump, candle making and more.

A barbecue will also be on the menu.

For those who do not know, the Hamilton House was built by Glendora founder George Whitcomb in the 1880s. The workshop adjacent to the Hamilton House was where Orton Engelhardt conceived of his Rain Bird sprinkler head, which revolutionized the citrus and lawn care industry.

Both the Hamilton House and Engelhardt Workshop received historical landmark status in 1991 and were moved to their current location.

The event will take place at Centennial Heritage Park, 701 E. Mauna Loa Ave.
