Travel back to the early twentieth century with period music, leisure pastimes, activities, prizes—a full day of summertime fun. Come early, bring a picnic lunch, and stay all afternoon.
Activities include indoor and outdoor art workshops and games. Look for the GIANT pinwheel and create a small one of your own. Design a flying machine or a sailboat to float in the fountain. Stop by the Friends of Boerner Botanical Gardens station to create paper posies and Samara flyers, or pick up a sketchpad and draw the sailboats on the lake. Fancy, flowery hats and insect pins are also on the menu.
Celebrating nearly 100 years are the Girl Scout and Boy Scout organizations. Check out the vintage scout paraphernalia on display.
Free with general admission
