On Saturday and Sunday, August 27 & 28, Hartwick Pines State Park in Grayling, Michigan, will host the annual Black Iron Days Festival at the Logging Museum in the park. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day, blacksmiths will pound and shape metal into a range of practical and decorative items. Watch glowing iron bend like clay and hear the ring of hammer meeting steel. The sights, sounds and scents of a 1912 steam powered sawmill cutting pine logs into boards will add to the activity at the site. Other craft demonstrations will include period music, woodworking, weaving, and wool spinning.
