Liberty Hall will open its doors to the community on Friday, July 4th to welcome the public to its annual free community event, An Old Fashioned July 4th, from 2 to 4 p.m. Activities will include our first-ever "Patriotic Wheels Parade" at 3 p.m. Decorate your bike, your stroller, or a wagon, and enter the contest and parade. First prize gets two tickets to Holiday World.
Other activities include children’s games with prizes, arts and craft activities like flag making, rolling hoops, bubble blowing and other games and activities intended for every age level. Adults and children alike will enjoy lawn games from the past like croquet and a game called “Quoits”, an early ring toss game. Free tours of the first floor of Liberty Hall will be available, as well as free watermelon slices.
Come have your photo taken with “Froggy” from 104.9, who will be celebrating the holiday in style, dressed in historic costume. To beat the heat, have a patriotic popsicle and “run through the sprinklers” when Liberty Hall will once again turn on its large irrigation system.
Families are encouraged to bring a blanket and enjoy a relaxing afternoon on the grounds of Liberty Hall, a National Historic Landmark, and former home of Senator John Brown, Kentucky’s first senator. Built in 1796, Liberty Hall is an extraordinary example of Georgian architecture. The site was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1972, and has been operated as a private, nonprofit museum since the 1930’s.
Admission to the event is free. Use 218 Wilkinson Street entrance. For more information, call Liberty Hall at (502) 227-2560, visit us at www.libertyhall.org, or like us on Facebook.
