October 5, 1989 — The 20th anniversary of the Page County Heritage Festival will this Saturday and Sunday offer another glimpse of the county’s pioneer past.

The event at the Page Valley Fairgrounds in Luray features arts and crafts demonstrations, displays and sales, traditional music and dancing, a historic home tour, an antique steam and gasoline engine show, a chili cook-off and an abundance of home- cooked foods.

A new event this year will be an authentic camp of a Rockingham County Civl War re-enactment unit. The unit in full uniform will conduct drills, fire rifles and cannons and demonstrate musket- loading.
