Abraham Lincoln Museum To Hold Back To School Bash

If you are excited about going back to school, the Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum has a great event in store. The Museum will be hosting a Back to School Bash on August 6th.  The Back to School Bash is a free day of games and crafts for children and helpful services for parents and caregivers as summer vacation begins to wind down. 


Some events include tee-ball, trivia questions, and learning about electricity. You may also have the chance to create bookmarks that sprout native plants, a police dog in action, exploring a fire truck or ambulance and many more. 


There will be plenty of events for parents as well.  Parents can get free haircuts for their kids, learn about opportunities at the YMCA and local parks, sign up for library services, and get safety information from the FBI and National Weather Service. 


The event will take place from 9 AM until 1 PM in Springfield’s Union Square Park.  In case of rain, it will be held at the Presidential Library and free parking is available in the ALPLM’s parking garage at Sixth and Madison.
