History and life will collide on April 6 at the inaugural Bee County Living History celebration.

The event will bring the history of Bee County alive in a medley provided by the different cultural groups that have roots in Bee County.

The Native American Council of Beeville will give a living history presentation complete with life-size wickiup, dancers and drum players.

There will be baile folklórico and mariachi music.

Also on hand will be a historical storyteller and a pictorial history of the county on display in the McClanahan House.

Artisans with crafts almost forgotten will be present to demonstrate their skills, such as the art of quilting or spinning wheels. Wares will be for sale from the various vendors.

Live music will take place throughout the day.

The event is free and open to public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at various locations on Corpus Christi Street including the McClanahan House, Joe Barnhart Library, the pocket parks and more.

The event, sponsored by the Bee County Historical Society and Beeville Main Street, is still in the planning stages. Volunteers and artisans are needed to help. The next planning meeting will take place on Feb. 28 at 5:30 p.m. at the McClanhan House, 206 E. Corpus Christi St.
