Community briefOhlone Day at Deer Hollow
Deer Hollow Farm's annual Ohlone Day festivities are set for Saturday, Oct. 15, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The family-friendly event features music, traditional games and hands-on activities at the farm's replica Ohlone village, which is normally off-limits to visitors.
Activities include acorn-grinding, shell-drilling and rope-making, all skills put to good use by the area's original inhabitants. Expert demonstrations in archery, fire-starting and tool-making are planned.
Admission is $5; children under 2 are free. The event is a fundraiser hosted by the Friends of Deer Hollow Farm, and is located at Rancho San Antonio County Park, Cristo Rey Drive off of Foothill Boulevard in Santa Clara County. Parking is limited, and about a 1-mile walk from the entrance to Deer Hollow. More information is at www.fodhf.org.
