City history comes to life
Wood-chopping will be just one of the many displays and free activities on offer at the Time Before festival.

Yesteryear will come to life when the City of Logan celebrates its rich history at the Time Before festival on Sunday 3 May.

Two of the city's most historic locations, Mayes Cottage and the Kingston Butter Factory, will play host to a range of free activities from 10am including arts and crafts, horse and cart rides and more. 
 
Mayor Pam Parker said the festival was a fantastic chance to experience how life would have been for early settlers in Logan.

"We have a vibrant history here in Logan and this is a free event where people can experience what it was like to live in Logan in years gone by," she said.

"With two locations, it is more convenient than ever, and there are plenty of activities and demonstrations to keep the whole family entertained.

"There will plenty of good old fashioned fun and the kids can have a go at making their own damper."

Other activities on offer at this unique heritage festival include candle making, face-painting, pot decorating, an animal farm and tomato planting.

There will also be live demonstrations including woodturning, blacksmiths, bobbin lace, sheep shearing and entertainment from the Royal Bounty Bush Band and Bushland Boogie.

Food, beverages and market stall items will be available to purchase.

Catch public transport to Kingston Train Station or park at the Kingston Butter Factory where a free park and ride service to Mayes Cottage will also be available.
