What a Weekend!
It's a busy weekend downtown!
First of all, right here at the museum, we're going Wild About Reading! This annual program is a part of the Virginia Festival of the Book's StoryFest. Learn about Virginia's wildlife through an enlightening program which includes up-close experiences with live animals and story reading. The first 100 children will receive a wildlife-themed book. This program is especially suitable for families with children from preschool to 2nd grade and is free with admission to the museum. Hosted by WHTJ PBS Charlottesville, Virginia Discovery Museum, and the Wildlife Center of Virginia.
For more information about Virginia Festival of the Book children's programs and all the StoryFest! events, see the VFB website.
Also on the mall, the Downtown Business Association and the City of Charlottesville are hosting an historic carousel at Central Place. That's right! There's a big carousel coming to play with our little one! The visiting carousel will be here today, Friday, March 22, through Sunday, March 24. Rides will run from 12 to 6 each day and are free to the public.
If you are downtown for any of these events today or tomorrow, don't forget to stop into the museum!
