Heritage Days are always a huge success with adults and children alike.  It is a wonderful opportunity for families to enjoy various outdoor activities in an educational and safe setting.

Come Join Us!

 

 

 

 

The Opening Ceremony starts at 9:00AM with the playing of our National Anthem, Raising of the Flag (by Macomb County Young Marines), and a Salute to the men and women of our Armed Forces.
 

 


 

Your enjoyment of Heritage Days starts at the gate, where you will be assisted with parking and given a map of he grounds layout for the day and a schedule of events.  All kids will receive a free ticket to our Youth Raffle, compliments of the NRA.

Admission and parking are both free, as are many of the events, with some requiring the purchase of tickets.  Plan on starting early for a fun-filled day at Huron Pointe.

Now, Let the Fun Begin!

 

Fly Tying...

Shooting Sports at Heritage Days

Safety and education go hand-in-hand. Under the watchful eyes of Heritage
Days certified instructors, children and novices can learn how fun and safe
the shooting sports can be.

The featured Shooting Sports are pellet gun, shotgun, .22 rifle, muzzleloader, and archery.

Before taking part in any Shooting Sports activities,
participants will be required to view a brief safety video unless they already possess a hunter's safety card.

If You Have A Hunter's Safety Card, Please Bring It!

 

 

Pellet Gun...
Just one of the many shooting sports featured at Heritage Days, shoot a pellet gun in a booth with instructors assisting. Equipment will be supplied, including eye and ear protection.
Shotgun...
Novices and children can "break a few clay birds" after
they learn how to safely handle a shotgun with one-on-one
professional instruction during this event.  Shotguns,
including youth models, will be available for use. Eye
and ear protection are required and are provided.

...if you want to learn the game of trap, experienced trap
shooters will show you how!

thirty 3-D targets depicting real-life nature scenarios     
(and some funny ones!)
