Saturday, Dec 2, 2017 will be busy. The annual Holiday Tree Lighting in Losner Park is being combined with the YMCA Jingle Bell Run. Those festivities will go into the evening and you can read all about them on Facebook at the Homestead Main Street, Inc page.
From 1-4:00 p.m. though is a first for the Historic Town Hall Museum. “Bring and Brag” is the latest concept of America’s museums to connect audiences with their local history archives. Experts will be on hand to value items and to share relevant history of family antiques. The Museum wants to identify pieces of original Homestead area history, although any old article can be shared. Participants might be startled to discover what they actually have. The rules for Bring-And-Brag are simple. Just two items allowed per individual (a set of dishes would be one item). The Museum suggests no bulky items or large furniture, but bring a picture instead. The event is free and they won’t close Krome Ave for the other festivities until 4:00 p.m.
If you haven’t been to the museum for a while, it’s a good time to stop by. The 1917 building was the first municipal building opened after Homestead incorporated in 1913. It was later made into the Historic Town Hall Museum and is at 41 N. Krome Ave, across from Losner Park. The regular hours are Tues-Sat 1:00-5:00 p.m.
