Family Day at Mesa Grande

Thanks everyone for finding out the good info on Lehi Days. I've been so busy juicing and juicing and juicing (I think I might be juicing for the rest of my life) all the oranges from my backyard that I didn't have time to go into super sleuth mode when I couldn't find any information. So for those of you wanting info on Lehi Days, just check out the previous posts comment section - Emily and Jill came to the rescue.

Now for something else exciting this Saturday. It is Family Day at Mesa Grande.

"Family Day at the Mesa Grande archaeological site is being held Saturday,March 7th from 8:00 AM - 11:00 AM. The free event will give you the chance to tour this large prehistoric Hohokam temple mound, view prehistoric technology demonstrations and participate in ancient games at the third annual open house held at West 10th Street and Date/Brown, across from the former Banner Mesa Hospital. A free pancake breakfast, sponsored by the Mesa Grande Community Alliance, will be served from 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM."

This one intrigues me because since I was a little girl, I've always wanted to go explore that big mound of dirt across from Mesa Lutheran (Banner Mesa). My mom told me stories of when she was a little girl they would sneak onto the land to find Indian artifacts but an old lady with a shotgun would come out and chase them away. That was over 50 years ago, so hopefully there aren't any ladies with shotguns at this event :)

I'm interested in this, too! I drive by it (around it, really) everyday, and it'd be interesting to see what it's all about. Thanks!
