Water/Ways Grand Opening and Family Day
June 26, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Come one, come all to Family Day at the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum! This special event coincides with the grand opening of the Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Street exhibit Water/Ways, brought to our community by the Florida Humanities. We are partnering with the City of Inverness to make this a day you won’t soon forget. Enjoy highly acclaimed professional storyteller Katie Adams perform a collection of the best pirate tales, including some Florida pirates of our very own! Kids can enjoy fun make and take crafts or get competitive in our miniature DIY boat races. Across the street, at the historic Valerie Theater, the City of Inverness will have information on water safety to start our summer off responsibly as well as face painting and a free showing of Finding Nemo at 3 p.m. We hope to see you there!
Water/Ways is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and Florida Humanities. Support for the exhibition and programming was provided through a grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
