An Old-Fashioned Fourth of July
The San Mateo County History Museum will present "An Old-Fashioned Fourth of July" within its museum, the 107-year-old county courthouse in Redwood City. Between 10 am and 4 pm children will be invited to hand-crank homemade vanilla ice cream and then take a taste. They will also make traditional Independence Day crafts to take home with them. Beginning at 1 pm, adults will be invited to view vintage films of the San Francisco Peninsula from the Museum’s archives. Museum admission will be half-price that day: $3.00 for adults, $2.00 for seniors and students and, as always, free for kids five and under. Activities will take place to coincide with the famous Redwood City Independence Day parade.
