E-mail Print

The Galt Museum and Archives invites parents and children to enjoy this year's Eggstravaganza on Saturday, April 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  with admission to the Discovery Hall for the must-see exhibit Treasures & Curiosities, photo opportunities with the Easter Bunny, and activities and demonstrations from around the world.
 "Along with the usual Easter and spring crafts, the kids will be making a small Mexican piñata and a Kwanzaa candle with a hidden treat," said Lori Harasem, Special Events Coordinator at the Galt Museum & Archives in a press release.
 Japanese sand art and African drumming demonstrations will also be held, and Southern Alberta resident Chelsea Areshenko will be on hand to paint names on grains of rice, available for purchase.  Funds raised will support programs at the Galt.  Each individualized grain takes just a few minutes to complete. Devil's Coulee will be on hand with their program information, and the Canadian Parents for French are looking after the face painting stations.
 Admission to Eggstravaganza is free for adults and $4 per child over the age of one, or $3 for children of annual passholders.
Upcoming 2010 Galt special programs and events include the UPCycling Show & Sale on Earth Day, April 22;  Taste of Downtown on May 5 and a 1940s Dance Hall Party on May 8 [part of Historic Lethbridge Week running May 1-9];  the Fort Macleod International Festival: Concert 1 on May 27;
