"Corps of Mystery" a drop-in activity for kids

The Sioux City Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center will present “Corps of Mystery,” a drop-in kids activity for the annual Siouxland “Fall Fest,” from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13. Kids are also invited to meet the Center’s newest animatronic “Sgt. Charles Floyd: A Young Man of Much Merit” and participate in Floyd-themed activities. Admission and treats will be free.

The Fall Fest activity will challenge participants to solve the mystery of Pvt. Moses Reed’s disappearance from camp on Aug. 4, 1804. Participants will have to search for clues in the Center’s exhibits.

“You will have to eliminate various suspects, objects and locations involved in Reed’s disappearance,” says Sara Olson, the Center’s Education Coordinator, “and make your own deduction of what happened to Reed.”

A special treat for kids is the addition of the animatronic, “Sgt. Floyd.” “To welcome Sgt. Floyd to the Center we’ll have various activities available like ‘Who was Floyd’ trivia, ‘Build-A-Monument’ craft, and much more for kids,” says Olson.

The activities are designed to stir kids’ curiosity about Siouxland’s past and of the Lewis & Clark Expedition. Treats will be available in the Sgt. Floyd Classroom.
