Families can bring a picnic dinner then take part in 19th century family fun night at Fort Nisqually Living History Museum. The event will be from 6-9 p.m. Friday.
Families will have the chance to participate in games, music and dancing of the mid-1800s. There also will be special firings of the candy cannon throughout the evening. Lemonade and ice cream will be available while supplies last.
The museum is a restoration of the Hudson’s Bay Co. outpost on Puget Sound, originally located near present-day DuPont. It provides a setting to explore the early history of the state and learn about the life experiences of those who settled here.
Admission for the event is $7.50 for adults, $6 for students, seniors (65 and older) and active military; $5 for children ages 4-17 and free for children 3 and younger.
The museum is inside Point Defiance Park, 5400 N. Pearl St., Tacoma. For more information, contact 253-591-5339 or fortnisqually.org.Staff report
