The Niagara County History Center’s “Family Nights” continue with fun and informative programs on the third Tuesday of the month. Dec. 17’s event begins at 5:30 p.m. with a pizza supper available for a nominal donation, followed by a brief presentation and a hands-on activity appropriate for adults and children. The program concludes by 7:15 pm. The topic for this month’s evening is: “A Baby Boomers’ Christmas: Holiday Shopping in the 1950s and 1960s.”
What did kids in the 1950s and 1960s want for Christmas? Guests will look at newspaper ads for toys and clothes and reminisce about stores in Lockport, Niagara Falls and Buffalo that are no longer there. They can make a Christmas ornament reminiscent of the 1960s.
Pre-registration is required for all programs. Call 716-434-7433 or email [email protected] for reservations and more information. The Niagara History Center is located at 215 Niagara St., Lockport.
