It takes a long time to get to where you can celebrate 200 years of anything! This weekend Pharsalia in Tyro will do just that. As we told you in our April 2014 cover story the plantation will hold its bicentennial Folk Life Festival starting Saturday – May 17th at 10AM and continuing on Sunday from 10AM until 4PM. This weekend’s festival is just one of several summer and fall events being held to celebrate the 200 year anniversary.
