Saline County Historical Society President Mary Shackleford was in costume Friday, ready to promote the Life on the Illinois Frontier festival.
However, the historical society will have a few more weeks to prepare. The festival is postponed to 10 a.m. June 1.
Organizer Delores Vick said the ground at the Saline Creek Pioneer Village and Museum is saturated and there is little hope it will be dried out enough by Saturday to support the crowd and vehicles without damage.
During the festival members of the historical society and visitors will dress up in period clothing and demonstrate corn shelling, horse drawn wagons, rope making, basket weaving, broom making, log splitting and butter making.
The gift shop will be open and there will be a petting zoo.
