Centennial Village Museum’s baby animals have grown up so it’s time for Centennial Village Museum’s annual Pets ‘N’ Popsicles event, August 3 through 12, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Sponsored by Agfinity, the event celebrates farm animals and pets. Staff and volunteers are on hand during the event to let kids experience the animals up close and to answer visitors’ questions.
Located just south of Island Grove Regional Park at 1475 A St., Centennial Village is an 8-acre outdoor museum featuring historical buildings, beautiful gardens and heritage farm animals. The event takes place in the western part of the museum, but visitors are invited to stroll along the museum’s paths. The historic buildings are closed during this event.
Admission to the Pets ‘N’ Popsicles event is just $3 per person ages 3+ and a Popsicle is included with every paid admission.
Since 1992, the City of Greeley Museums has produced a living history festival for fourth and fifth grade students with interactive elements and demonstrations illustrating life in Northern Colorado and the American West in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
This event is closed to the public and requires advance school registration. For further details, call Sarah Lester at 970-350-9275.
Visitors can enjoy candle dipping as well as creating their own ornaments. Food concessions are available with proceeds benefiting the Friends of the Greeley Museums. The Stevens-Reynolds House is decorated in traditional holiday style and Selma’s Store is available for visitors to shop for unique gifts and other holiday items. Admission is only $4 per adult and $2 per senior or child. Youth ages 12 and under are free with each canned food donation for the Weld County Food Bank.
