Sunday Times Newspapers


WYANDOTTE — A new event has been added to the Museums’ Heritage Event Series this year.


A 1920s Spring Speakeasy will be held May 30 to highlight the city’s role during Prohibition.


Included in the free general admission event that begins at 6:30 p.m. are Model A cars on display, live music in the Marx Home, a “blind pig,” a 1920s fashion show at the Ford-MacNichol Home and actors dressed in period costumes walking around the museum grounds.


At three separate Speakeasy showtimes, a period film will be shown on the side of one of the buildings. Tickets for the Speakeasy showings at 6:30, 7:30 and 8:30 p.m. cost $8.


Alcohol also will be served in a designated area for an additional charge.


“It’s a new event for us, and it should be a good day,” said Special Events Coordinator Natalie Rankine.
Tickets currently are on sale, and museum staff say they will sell out quickly.
