Town of Georgetown hosting First Friday historic events
May 21, 2017
Starting on June 2, the historic preservation arm for the town of Georgetown in neighboring Clear Creek County will host three first Friday of the month events this summer at the Hamill House Museum.
The Victorian-style lawn parties based on the theme of "Alice in Wonderland" will allow attendees the chance to unwind as they enter the weekend, with all proceeds from the benefit going to the 19th century museum. The Hamill House is currently undergoing an extensive restoration of its Gothic Revival design, and the additional money helps to match a Colorado State Historic Fund Grant.
The kickoff from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on June 2, titled "Mad Hatter Garden Party," asks guests to wear their fanciest, funniest or Victoria-era hat while enjoying food, drinks, games and prizes to the sounds of live music. The "Three Cheers for the Red Queen of Hearts, White and Blue Caterpillar" follow-up on July 7, also from 5:30-7:30 p.m. promises card games and yard games on top of all the other amenities. Cost for each is $15 for adults and $5 for children ages 4-12.
The grand finale on Aug. 4, 5:30-8:30 p.m., "Through the Looking Glass Dinner," has the same activities as the first two events, but with both a silent and live auction, as well as dinner over big band jazz. Price of admission is $35 a head and includes food, drinks and a fun time.
