    Join us for a playground party as we celebrate the 79th year of Museum Council. Come run, jump, and laugh with your museum friends, or enjoy the Giant Wooden Slide at Smith Memorial Playground as we hear from Museum Council about new initiatives and successes from the past year.


    Feeling creative? Silkscreen your own tote bag with faculty from Fleisher Art Memorial. Or, participate in an interactive percussion performance with Tony Mascara from The Audio Lab. Then, explore the playground with a scavenger hunt and chances to win prizes


    A picnic style buffet from Rybrew, beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), and other treats are included with your ticket purchase. This is a family friendly event. Kids under 10 are free to attend. Children 11 and older should purchase a ticket to attend.
