Henry Plant Museum says
Roll back the clock a century and join us for an old fashioned picnic on Sunday, March 6th, starting at 10 am, in Plant Park. Bring your blanket, pack a picnic basket and invite family and friends to experience the pleasures of a simpler time. Relax in the shade, or test your Victorian sporting prowess with challenges of hoops & sticks, croquet, horseshoes, badminton, and three-legged races. Victorian table games will be offered including dominoes, checkers, jacks or tiddlywinks. We'll have strolling models in vintage clothing, live theater, and continuous entertainment on Center Stage.

Center Stage Schedule
10 am: Flexible Four Barbershop Quartet
11 am: Make Believe Theater
Noon: Matt Weihmuller Jazz Trio
1 pm: Upstairs/Downstairs Live Theater with Teddy Roosevelt
2 pm: Tampa Community Band - Conductor, Jahn Van De Putte
In addition to live entertainment, community partners will offer crafts and activities. The Humane Society of Tampa Bay will be present at a table with some friendly dogs looking for a forever home. Visitors will be able to interact with the dogs. VSA Florida will be in the park and stocked with supplies for an art activity for all. The Paper Seahorse will host Victorian paper-crafting on the veranda. The Florida Aquarium shares interesting information about aquatic plants and animals with a children’s activity.

Visitors will be entertained by a high-wheel bicycle demonstration by members of The Wheelmen. The group is dedicated to the preservation and restoration of antique bicycles.

Picnic in the Park is a perfect opportunity to lull in a haven of rest and contentment on the banks of the Hillsborough River. Bring your own picnic basket, chairs, blankets and coolers and enjoy the day. A limited number of tables are available throughout the park.

Food and refreshments will be available for purchase.

Step back in time and encounter what life was like at the former Tampa Bay Hotel with a special $1 admission at the Henry B. Plant Museum from noon-5 pm.

Underwritten by Publix Super Markets Charities, Raymond James, Tampa Downtown Partnership, and The Tampa Tribune.
