ONEIDA, Tenn. (AP) -- The Spring Planting Day Celebration, an East Tennessee tradition, will be Saturday at Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area.
The 12th annual event will include demonstrations about blacksmithing, quilting, flint knapping, woodcarving, soap making, basket weaving, hand spinning yarn and chicken scratch embroidery. The Knoxville Area Dulcimer Club will perform throughout the day.
Antique tractors and farm equipment will be displayed.
Over the years, the event has become a homecoming for area residents.
Prospective Junior Rangers will be able to earn a Junior Ranger patch and badge at the gathering.
