Walk for History—Sunday, May 22, 2016, 8:00-11:00 am
FALMOUTH HISTORY WALK IS ON FOR MAY 22!
The Museums on the Green invites you to the first “Falmouth History Walk” on Sunday, May 22nd. Along the 5k (3.1 miles) walk you will meet costumed characters from Falmouth’s history. You can come in costume, too, or just come as you are. Prizes will be awarded for best costumes, but chiefly the walk is intended for all, especially families, to participate and appreciate our local history. Beginning and ending at the Museums on the Green, the path will travel past a number of historic homes and sites in Falmouth. Along the way, at various venues, there will be costumed re-enactors and signs to signifythat the particular location is of historical importance. You are going to meet pirates, complete with their ship, along the route.
Walkers can go at their own pace. Self-timed runners are also welcome. Refreshments and a takeaway item will be presented at the finish line. All funds benefit the Museums on the Green, home of the Falmouth Historical Society.
Registration begins at 8:00 a.m.. The walk begins at 9 a.m. Participants are asked to park at the Lawrence School, 113 Lakeview, Falmouth, and walk across the field to the registration area at the Museums on the Green. There is no on-street parking available, and no parking in the Congregational Church parking lot.
