Fish in the Water, Fun on the Land During “Sunday Afternoon With Tom & Huck”

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, summer style games and family fun is from Noon – 4 p.m. on Sunday, August 16th.

This laid back event, loosely based on the "Adventures of Tom & Huck" by Mark Twain, features a fun afternoon of fishing and activity. Fishing in the Hornady Family Arbor begins at noon and runs through 4 p.m.. 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 and small prizes will be awarded to anyone who hooks a fish.

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 and concessions. While at the museum, see the newly renovated Stuhr Building and the exhibits "Peggie Hartwell: Voice on Cloth" and "The Museum's Largest Artifact".

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
