Greenbelt Halloween Scavenger Hunt for s

 The CDC says scavenger hunts are safe! Please practice social distancing, though! Print out our Scavenger Hunt and take a walk (or bike ride or drive) around the neighborhood to see what you can find. Send us a photo of your favorite decoration and we'll put it on the Museum's Facebook page! (Kids make sure you have your parents' permission for a photo first!)

Check our social media for fun vintage Halloween recipes, crafts, costume ideas etc. Thank you for participating!

A Virtual Retro Town Fair

Retro Town Fair is one of our favorite annual events and we truly didn't want to skip it, so we thought we'd try a virtual version to keep everyone safe. We've had to make some adjustments and there will be no in-person judging, but we still hope you'll consider participating.  Below is how (we hope!) it will work. Come back to this website on Sunday, September 6 to see the winners!
