Coming into town in July? We’ve got you covered. Here are just a few fun and interesting activities going on:
— July 4: Ring in Independence Day with an Old-fashioned Fourth of July Celebration on the grounds of Henry Mercer’s Fonthill. Test your mettle in games like tug-o-war, bucket brigade relays, watermelon-eating contests, the cake walk, obstacle course, stilt walking, sack races, and wheelbarrow races. Don’t miss the decorated bike contest and parade, either.
— July 8: Hotsy Totsy will perform hits of the 1940s, ‘50s and ‘60s, as well as their own “reinvented” current chart toppers at Chapman Park in town. Marking 20 years, the Sounds of Summer music series is in partnership with both Doylestown Township and Doylestown Borough.
— July 15: Bring your lunch and listen to Eco-Man as he brings his own style of environmentally conscious children’s music to the Brown Bag It With the Arts series on the lawn at Bucks County Courthouse. It’s all interactive, and kids young and old will love it!
— July 26: This’ll be the last day to see Adolph A. Weinman’s Baltimore Civil War Monument silver galvano plaque on display at the Bucks County Civil War Round Table and Museum. Weinman is best known as designer of the Mercury dime and the walking Liberty half-dollar for the U.S. Mint.
During the summer, the museum’s hours have been extended to Saturday and Sunday.
