Title
Patsy Cline Day
Description
The MSV is open on Labor Day Monday to celebrate the Becoming Patsy Cline exhibition and admission is FREE to all thanks to Grove’s Winchester Harley-Davidson. Along with free gallery and garden admission, the day will include a variety of 1950s-era games for children and families in the lawn between the Museum and the gardens. Those attending may play games such as Pickle Pitch, Blue Ribbon Cow Pies, Spill the Milk, and Ring Toss. In addition, from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., visitors may enter a Count the Kernels contest to guess the number of popcorn kernels in a jar. The person with the closest guess will win the jar of popcorn and a one-year Family Membership to the Museum (value $75). Guests also may play cornhole (a bean-bag toss lawn game) throughout the day, and three children’s cornhole tournaments will take place. Ages 6 to 9 will compete at 11 a.m. (registration from 10 to 10:30 a.m.), ages 10 to 12 at noon (registration from 11 to 11:30 a.m.), and ages 13 to 15 at 1 p.m. (registration from noon to 12:30 p.m.). Winners of each tournament will receive a Patsy Cline t-shirt, two free passes to the MSV, and a hat. In addition, from 1 until 3 p.m., Shenandoah Valley musician Bryan Shepherd and his band will play country classics, along with original music. Free to all.
