CADDO GAP – The quiet little community of Caddo Gap will be abuzz with activity this Saturday as the McWilliams family and the Gap Mercantile present the Caddo Gap Heritage Festival this Saturday, October 1.
The event is sponsored by the Gap Mercantile and the Mount Ida Area Chamber of Commerce. The festival will include a variety of vendors and demonstrations highlighting the “old-fashioned” way of doing a number of things.
The festival will highlight the heritage of the Ouachita Mountains while seeking to preserve and promote the old time skills, crafts and lifestyle of the Ouachita Mountain settlers from the early 1800’s through the 1940s.
Vendors will offer homemade and handmade items while demonstrations will include blacksmithing, wool spinning, broom making, quilting, log hewing, old time farm skills and Native American crafts.
Antique tractors, cars and engines will also be on display. There will also be Civil War re-enactments and Bonnie and Clyde are rumored to make an appearance as well.
