Bring your family and picnic lunch Saturday, August 10, starting at 12 noon, to Annandale National Historic Site’s front lawn for the first Dolly and Teddy Bear Picnic.
“It’s a family fun event that we thought would fit well with the Hello Dolly exhibit,” said Patricia Phelps, Manager of Culture and Heritage/Curator.
The Tillsonburg museum at Annandale National Historic Site, 30 Tillson Avenue, is currently showcasing the Hello Dolly exhibit, which has more than 100 dolls from the museum collection, plus dolls from the community borrowed for the exhibit.
“The Hello Dolly exhibit ends that weekend (August 11), so we thought ‘what a great way to say adieu to the exhibit’ is to have a picnic. The idea is that families come and bring their own picnic lunch – so that’s why it starts at noon.
“We have a beautiful lawn and we’re going to have games and crafts and a tea party area where you can have a cup of tea – in a real china teacup – and a cookie. We’re going to set up tables with tablecloths and real china teacups so you can join the tea party after you have your picnic.
