Hundreds of students are getting the chance to step back in time this week as History Fest kicks off at the McGowan Farm in Mankato.
The event is open to all schools beginning Wednesday through Friday from 9 to 3 p.m.
Kids will learn all about history with the help of hands-on activities, like launching a catapult, and cider making.
They'll also hear stories from historical interpreters, including ones of 17th Century Scotland and the Old West.
It's not only just for students. The event is open to the public on Saturday from 10 to 4.
