FAMILY NIGHTS ARE BACK FOR 2017
May 16 – “The Victorian Parlor”
Admission to Family Night is free. A pizza and beverage supper will be available for a nominal donation from 5:30-6:00 p.m., followed by the program. Family Nights are a series of monthly programs and activities specifically designed for families with children ages 5 and up. All ages can share a good time learning about history with a Niagara County connection.
The Family Night series, which began last year, highlights local history in formats appealing to everyone with a different theme each month. The program is designed to bridge the gap between our current programs for children and adults, offering an evening out with activities and unique interpretive topics much like what we now offer in our children’s sessions.
The rest of the year’s themes, all with Niagara County emphasis, will be: June 20, History of Photography; July 18, 200th Anniversary of the Start of the Erie Canal; August 22, History of the Niagara County Fair; September 19, One-Room Schoolhouses; October 17, Farms and Apple Orchards; November 21, Women Get the Vote in New York State; and December 19, Christmas in the 1950s. Presenters throughout the year will include History Center staff, volunteers and re-enactors from the museum’s Step Back in Time Players. Family Nights are open to all Western New York families, regardless of residence.
Reservations are needed for Family Nights and programs fill up quickly. Please call the History Center at (716) 434-7433 for reservations and information.
