Old Sturbridge Village Celebrates Feb. Break, President’s Day Wknd

Thursday, February 06, 2014

 

To prepare parents (and kids) for some of the most restless days of the year, Old Sturbridge Village has announced they will offer special programs and discounts to celebrate President's Day Weekend and February School Vacation Week.

School vacation runs from the 15th to the 23rd. All week, Sturbridge Village will feature a variety of fun, educational, and offbeat programs for families and kids of all ages. The weekend kickoff will include toasts, musical presentations, storytelling, free admission to anyone named George or Martha, and cameo appearances by Presidents John Adams and Ulysses S. Grant.

Programs will go on to include demonstrations of hair curling (done the old fashioned way--bear grease and sausage curls), dancing, and ball-appropriate etiquette. During the winter, the Village is open Tuesday through Sunday from 9:30-4pm, and on all Monday holidays, President's day included. The Village offers free admission during the winter for all children accompanied by an adult paying full price.
