GRAND ISLAND, STUHR MUSEUM – If summer has slipped by without an afternoon of fishing, Stuhr Museum’s “Sunday Afternoon With Tom and Huck” is just what the doctor ordered. This fun afternoon of fishing, prizes, boat races and family fun is from Noon – 4 p.m. on Sunday, August 17th.
Based on Mark Twain’s classic stories involving Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn, history, literature and country fun collide during this unique afternoon of fishing and games. Fishing in the Hornady Family Arbor begins at noon and runs throughout the afternoon. Visitors are encouraged to bring their fishing poles, and the museum will provide the lively bait for the literally hundreds of fish in the arbor’s pond. A limited number of loaner poles will be available on a first come, first serve basis.
Adventurous anglers are also welcome to take part in other “Tom and Huck” themed activities, including “white washing” a fence, watermelon seed spitting and more. This slice of Americana also includes games, concessions and prizes, including copies of Mark Twain books.
Admission is $10 for adults and $8 for children age 6-12. Those 5 and under are admitted free. Stuhr Museum and Hastings Museum members are admitted free. For more information, contact the museum at (308) 385-5316 or log onto www.stuhrmuseum.org.
