Face painting is one of the activities planned for Family Fun Day this Saturday at the Mt. Shasta Sisson Museum.

Saturday's "Family Fun Day" at the Mt. Shasta Sisson Museum will feature arts and crafts activities, face painting, bubble science, playing with fake snow, and flying kites and balsa wood airplanes.

From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the park area in front of the museum, the event is only part of the fun that can be had, according to museum director Jean Nels, who encourages families to bring a picnic, go into the museum to take your photo on the 100 year old fire truck Lulu Belle, see the lenticular cloud photos, and feed the trout at the hatchery.

All participants will receive a free gift.

Many activities are free and some require a small donation of $1 to $5 to cover the museum's costs. All donations are tax deductible, as the museum is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization run by volunteers.

Nels says the Mt. Shasta Sisson Museum was created by and for the people of Mount Shasta and "is working to inform and entertain local citizens and visitors to the area."

Founded in 1983, the museum serves the region by sharing local history and culture.

The museum is located at 1 North Old Stage Road in Mount Shasta. During the summer, it is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information about Mt. Shasta Sisson Museum, visit
