Celebrates cultures In Rosenberg
This weekend, March 16-17, Imperial Arts will “give back” to the community which has embraced them since last year, while also celebrating diverse cultures.
Saturday, March 16, from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Imperial Arts and its partners, Another Time Soda Fountain & Cafe, Old Main Street Bakery, Southern Sister Designs, and Downtown Studio, will offer a free event for children of all ages, culminating with Imperial’s screening of the children’s film, “The Muppets’ Wizard of Oz”.
The “Wizard of Oz Party” will be held at the Downtown Park in Rosenberg, 800 3rd Street, next door to Southern Sister Designs, and across from Another Time Soda Fountain.
The party will include games, crafts, face painting, hair design, ‘stuffing the Scarecrow’, ‘pin the heart on the Tin Man’, and more – all provided free to children by the event’s sponsors – Historic Downtown Rosenberg businesses.
The Downtown Park will be decked with poppies, and the stage will be transformed into “Emerald City.”
Proprietors Renee Butler, Tracey Satterwhite, Candice Beck, and Nicholas Maresh are excited about the party, and about bringing some familiar and new faces to Historic Downtown Rosenberg.
Rosenberg Mayor Vincent Morales said, “I am so pleased to see these types of partnerships, cooperating together to bring people to our Historic Downtown through the arts and culture! It will be a great day!”
A “yellow brick road” will be rolled out from the Downtown Park to the Center for the Arts (Imperial Arts) for a 2:00 p.m. showing of the 2005 children’s film, “The Muppets’ Wizard of Oz.”
Admission to the film will also be free – but only to those children and their parents who attend the party in the park and get a special hand-stamp that will admit them to the film. Seating for the film is limited and will be first-come, first-served.
