St. Charles County’s Parks and Recreation is hosting a Mother’s Day Tea Tasting on Saturday, May 8 at The Historic Daniel Boone Home, 1868 Hwy. F in Defiance. To ensure guests are socially-distanced under The Grand Pavilion, the luncheon has been divided into one session at 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and another from 1-2:30 p.m.. Tickets are limited to 50 guests for each session.
Participants can treat their mother, grandmother, and others to an assortment of historical and modern teas, prepackaged finger sandwiches and cookies. All participants will receive a tea cup to take home. Participants of all ages are invited to tour the scenic village grounds where interpreters will be stationed in several buildings exploring trades and chores practiced by Missouri’s frontier women in the early 1800s. Attendees will receive a coupon for a future tour of the Boone Home and a chance to win a teapot by purchasing $1 raffle tickets.
Admission is $8 per person and all ages are welcome; pre-registration is required. Masks are required inside the buildings and gift shop. Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the park.
