Easton museum celebrates birthday with free entry

August 6, 2013 by  

The Sigal Museum in Easton will celebrate its third birthday this month, and will host a number of events for people of all ages to mark the anniversary. A highlight of the celebration will be free admission this weekend.

A location at which visitors can really delve into local history, the free admission will be the icing on the cake for the weekend-long celebration. Things kick off on Saturday morning with a parade to the museum from the Easton Farmers’ Market. The procession will take place at 10:00 am and, once it reaches the museum, there will be a short ceremony and birthday cake to follow.

A number of events are scheduled throughout the day on Saturday. From 11:00 am until 4:00 pm there will be a Pennsylvania-German folk art workshop for children and adults. Local historian and storyteller John Moore will portray a number of characters throughout the day from 12:00 pm until 3:00 pm, and Jean Sattler will lead a demonstration of spinning wool into a shawl on Saturday from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. The museum can use banner printing to advertise its birthday celebration and the events taking place.

The celebration wraps up on Sunday, August 11 at 2:00 pm with a fashion show focusing on dress and apparel from World War I and II. The show is to be geared around the way rationing and wars impacted fashion at the time, and tickets to attend it are priced at $15.
