Dad, did you forget about Mother's Day?
Don't fret, Yesteryear Village at the South Florida Fairgrounds has you covered with the 2nd annual Mother's Day Picnic.

For $40, you get two tickets to the village that has 33 historic buildings set in the 1940s. You also get a box with treats for two adults that can be eaten at a picnic table or on a blanket you bring with you.


The Mother's Day bicnic box includes house-made grilled chicken salad, fresh roasted red pepper hummus, carrots and celery, fresh-cut imported cheese, marinated olives, fresh baked bread, jams and jellies, fresh scones, fresh fruit, and crackers.

But wait, what if you want the kids to come? There is a kid's lunch box available for purchase for $10. It includes a ham and cheese sandwich, chips, fruit, and a cookie.

All over the grounds, there are also photo ops for mom to take some selfies and show off her family on social media or send to family members.
