BEEVILLE – History and life will collide on Saturday, March 22, at the second 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 singers, dancers, drum players and storytelling.

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

Exhibits and demonstrations of education in the past will intrigue children of all ages and bring to life the cultures of the people who settled Bee County.

The event is free and open to public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the vicinity of the McClanahan House on East Corpus Christi Street and the surrounding mini-parks.

Raffle tickets will be sold at the event for $1 each or six for $5 (proceeds to benefit the historic McClanahan House). First prize for the raffle will be a half-day cruise for up to six people with Aransas Bay Birding Charters.

The event is sponsored by the Bee County Historical Society and Beeville Main Street. Vendor space is available by calling 343-3119. Volunteers and artisans are needed to help.
