Boulder County, Colo. - Boulder County Parks & Open Space will host the Autumn Heritage and Vintage Baseball Game Day on Sun., Sept. 24, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. at the Walker Ranch Homestead.

Visitors will experience what autumn was like on a ranch in the 1880s. Costumed volunteers demonstrate how ranchers prepared for winter. Guests of all ages can participate in historical games, help with butter churning and laundry with a washboard and wringer, and learn about calf-roping among other activities. A blacksmith will demonstrate making hinges, nails, and other hardware needed around the ranch. One-room school sessions are a favorite activity.

Annual Baseball Game. **The vintage baseball game has been canceled due to extremely muddy conditions for the safety of the players.
