Whether you want to sing or just clap along – everyone is welcome and we promise you will leave with a smile on your face and a tune stuck in your head.  Pack a picnic supper and bring a blanket or grab one of the bistro tables set up on the deck. The museum is also free Thursday starting at 5 p.m. so you can explore the new Exhibit – One Degree of Separation or try your hand at woodworking in the shop!  If weather permits we will also have a campfire to sing around but if not we will bring the fun indoors in our children’s forest.     Check out Gary’s website here: http://garyrasberry.com/about/ Please Note: A camp fire might not be possible if there is a burn ban on in the City of Kingston but the Campfire Songs at the Mac will take place in another area in or around the museum.
