Southgate New Year’s gets historical

December 17, 2016 by  

As residents of Southgate and the rest of Northern Kentucky get ready to change their calendars over to 2017, some are looking forward to celebrating New Year’s Eve with an eye on the past. The Behringer-Crawford Museum is hosting a New Year’s Eve Party for all ages.

The midday event eschews the traditional midnight toast for a family theme. Visitors young and old can come and make a toast to the New Year while joining around the table together for a light lunch. Additionally, guests will have the opportunity to play some games together or work on crafts such as custom drinkware or hats. Afterwards attendees can take a tour of the museum.

The Behringer-Crawford Museum has been open since 1950 and is dedicated to preserving the history and heritage of the Ohio River Valley and Northern Kentucky. They are devoted to the collection and preservation of visual, cultural, and artistic media from the area. Their current exhibits include holiday toy trains and hand-carved Santas. Guided tours for both children and adults are also available.

The New Year’s Party will be held on December 31 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at the Behringer-Crawford Museum, located at 1600 Montague Rd in nearby Covington. Admission is $5 for members and $10 for nonmembers. Anyone interested in more info should go to the website.
