Huronia Museum to Host First Annual “Pass It On” Storytelling Festival

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: (Wednesday, July 29, 2015)

Huronia Museum to Host First Annual “Pass It On”  Storytelling Festival on August 22nd, 2015 in Little Lake Park

Huronia Museum is pleased to announce that it will be hosting the first annual “Pass it On” Storytelling Festival on August 22nd, 2015 in Little Lake Park from 10 am to 4 pm.

The Pass-It-On Storytelling Festival aims to create experiences of discovery and delight through the art of storytelling.  Huronia Museum is taking a leading role in heritage preservation by bringing first-class local and guest storytellers to the people of Huronia to engage in one of humanity’s earliest art forms. The museum ultimately places to an ongoing, annual festival that enriches the hearts, and minds of our community.

Visitors to this first annual storytelling festival will enjoy two storytelling venues in Little Lake Park.  Stories can be heard from the Rotary Stage and in the museum’s own Huron Ouendat Longhouse.  Visitors can expect a special performance in the afternoon by the Bicycle Opera, an opera company which travels to communities solely by bicycle.   A children’s craft area for little story listeners will also be located within the Festival pathways.   Vendors, other performances and food services by  ELM Catering will also be located in Little Lake Park on the day of the festival making it a reason to come to Little Lake Park and stay for the day.

Huronia Museum is holding its second Halloween Costume Sale on Saturday, October 4th. Doors will open at 8 AM and we will run until noon or the costumes run out!

Last year, thanks to a very generous donation from the Liquigator, we held our first ever Halloween costume sale, and it was a huge success.  It was a great fundraiser for us and it gave parents in town an opportunity to get fun costumes at a very reasonable price.  We would love to be able to make this an annual event but we are looking for more donated costumes.

This is a great way to pick up an inexpensive costume for the kids or yourself and all profits go to support the programs and activities of Huronia Musuem!

If you have costumes at home that your little ones (or YOU) have grown out of we would love to take them for our sale. We are also looking for new or gently used costumes to add to our sale so if you have some that you would like to donate please give us a call at 705-526-2844

We will be accepting donation from now until October 3 of this year.  We are open 7 days a week and you can drop them off any time.  Or if you can’t get to us, give us a call and we can come to you.  The costumes will be going to very good cause and even though you don’t need it anymore someone else would love to wear it.
