Don't miss the free 1920s Family Fun Day this Saturday, September 15, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., on the Green and in the Library in Montrose! Everyone is welcome to this event, which is being held as part of Susquehanna County Reads. You do not need to be registered to attend, but it's a great way to find out more about the era in which the book "The Great Gatsby" is set.
There will be dozens of activities going on, all tied to the 1920s theme. Classic toys to play with include Lincoln Logs, checkers, pick-op sticks, yo-yo's, and jump ropes. Children will be able to "make and take" paper airplanes, paper dolls and flapper headbands, and action games like sack races and leapfrog will keep them busy too.
All ages will enjoy the craft demonstrations (including quilting and wooden toys) and the many displays. There will be exhibits on sports like golf, tennis, and baseball, as well as farming and household implements, and books from the 1920s. The Fire Museum will be open as well.
1920s fashions will be on display, and entertainment will include music, Charleston dance demonstrations, and real Cake Walks. The food and drink will be authentic to the 1920s as well, with refreshments that were popular then and still are: hot dogs, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, root beer floats, lemonade, cookies, raisins, and penny candy.
Antique cars and farm equipment will be featured as well, and there will be speeches on Woman's Suffrage. A classic silent Charlie Chaplin movie will be shown in the library.
