When our events page can't handle ALL THE THINGS happening in a weekend, we feel it deserves a special post. So here goes nothing... there's a ton of great things happening on Saturday and here's a rundown on some of it:
Saturday, September 9th:
Olmsted Park Design Tour: 10-11:30am
Interested in learning more about Highland and Olmsted's legacy? Come learn about the Park's unique landscape design and structure, and its Mt. Hope Nurseries "roots."
Purchase perennials and woody plants grown from seeds, divisions, cuttings, and offshoots from the museum gardens! Find the sale near the University Ave entrance.
For $10 (cash) buy a tote bag and stuff it with tee shirts from Crazy Dog! Half of the proceeds go directly to benefitting the Willow Domestic Violence Center of Greater Rochester. How great is that?
Go tour the Rundel Memorial Building of Central Library. Visit the Lower Stacks and a trap door to the millrace; the Upper Stacks, with staff reports of paranormal activity; the Local History & Genealogy Division's treasures; and more.
The Rochester Celtic Fest (also on Friday from 5-10pm) is being held in MLK Jr. Memorial Park. Celebrate Irish culture with instrument and dance demonstrations, food, music, and more.
This 45-minute documentary film screening about one of the world's biggest street art and human rights campaigns is FREE. Local filmmaker Kyle Corea who was part of the project/filming/producing in New York City will be present during discussions.
There's so much happening this weekend, there's a chance we probably missed something great. But, you can't deny after looking at this list that your Saturday will not be boring.
