SPECIAL EXHIBIT OPENING EXTRAVAGANZA: HORSES ARE QUIET, TRACTORS ARE LOUD
Museum of the Grand Prairie, Lake of the Woods Forest Preserve, 1–5 p.m.
The 1920s are known for many things—prohibition, flappers, and Black Tuesday to name a few. The 1920s were a pivotal point in our history, but one of the biggest and most impactful events was the introduction of the mechanized tractor. Today we open our special exhibit for 2017: Horses are Quiet, Tractors are Loud. This opening extravaganza will feature tours of the new exhibit, antique tractors, live draft horses, and activities for all ages. FREE! For more info: (217) 586-2612 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Monday, March 20 – Friday, March 24
