Step right up, and step back in time this Saturday, when the Surrey Museum hosts an early 20th century-style summer carnival.

Games, snacks and giveaway prizes are among the family-friendly activities planned from 1 to 4 p.m. as part of the museum’s latest installment in its Discovery Saturdays series.

There will be a mini festival exhibit in the foyer that includes photographs and objects reflecting Surrey’s history of fairs, carnivals and fun summer activities.

Play hand-eye coordination testing games like ring-toss and bean bag toss, sip lemonade, or munch some popcorn or cotton candy by donation.

The BC Hydro community outreach team will have a table and interactive game, and the BC SPCA will be on site promoting summer safety for pets. English mastiff, Chewie, and two other therapy dogs will also be there.

Discovery Saturdays are held the third Saturday of the month at the museum, from 1-4 p.m. Admission is by donation.

The Surrey Museum is located at 17710 56A Avenue. It’s open Tuesday to Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. It’s closed Sundays, Mondays and holidays. Admission sponsored in 2013 by the Friends of the Surrey Museum and Archives Society.
