PLAINS, GA (WALB) -

The Jimmy Carter Boyhood Farm began setting up Wednesday to put a spin on its annual Syrup Day this weekend.

Not only will visitors get to see the process of turning sugar cane into cane syrup, but this year, all different kinds of artists will be on site demonstrating different styles of art from the 1930s, for "Arts in Archery."

It's a family friendly event where people can see Native American artifacts, glass blowing, hand crafted furniture and railroad inspection cars.

"We live in such a technological age that a lot of these kids don't understand how it used to be done," said Randy Dillard, the park ranger. "By doing this program, they'll actually see a team of mules operating the cane press."

Items crafted by the demonstrators will be available for sale.

Arts in Archery is Saturday, November 19 at the Jimmy Carter Boyhood Farm in Plains from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
