Tours will meet and depart from the courthouse every 15 minutes and last approximately 30 minutes. There will be an actor staged at each mural who will be portraying historic figures. The tours are free and run from 8:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m.

The Walk in Time Tour is part of the inaugural Sliced Bread Saturday Festival. Activities during the day range from sidewalk sales at downtown businesses, a variety of vendors, games for kids, and, of course, the annual bread baking contest.

If you would like to participate in the bread baking contest, the rules are your bread must be in a loaf wrapped in plastic and the recipe must be attached.

For more information on this and other events happening in the Chillicothe area you can call the Main Street office at 660-646-4071.
