An ART-rageous Social at Historical Park and Ag Museum

Palmetto Historical Park and Manatee County Agricultural Museum’s first social of the summer will be an ART-rageous Social on Saturday, June 12th, 11:00 am – 3:00 pm.

This free family event will feature art activities and crafts throughout the park. Watch a “how to draw” movie and practice what you learn, do some painting, make a macaroni creation and a gorgeous gecko. Enter the watercolor contest which will be judged for a prize.

A Scholastic Book Fair will be held in the Carnegie Library with a large variety of books available for purchase. Each child who visits the social may select a free book from the park’s “Book Bins” to take home. There will be contests and drawings for books and book fair gift certificates.

Word of Mouth BBQ will be selling sandwiches, hamburgers, and hotdogs. Alex’s Lemonade Stand will be raising funds for childhood cancer research. In addition, the book fair will continue to be held daily from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm, June 14th through June 25th (weekdays). The park is located at 515 10th Ave. West, Palmetto.
