Washington State Park hosts Missouri Bicentennial Weekend

Every state park and historic site is depicted in the Missouri State Parks bicentennial quilt, which will be on display Saturday during bicentennial events at Washington State Park near De Soto.

This weekend, Washington State Park staff invites the public to commemorate Missouri's bicentennial year on Saturday and Sunday with a guided petroglyph tour, living history activity and a viewing of the Missouri State Parks Commemorative Bicentennial Quilt.

Missouri State Parks staff and volunteers worked to create a quilt representing each Missouri state park and historic site. The quilt will be on display 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday at The Thunderbird Lodge located in the park.
