Victorian Days at the Old Courthouse
Victorian Days at the Old Courthouse takes place Sunday, August 19 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the San Mateo County History Museum. The FREE EVENT will include craft activities for children such as once-popular Victorian toys and hats. For children and adults, there will be a Victorian Tea served in historic Courtroom A. Reenactors will portray Victorian millionaires as they discuss the etiquette of tea and talk about their neighbors. Then, enjoy tea, finger sandwiches and scones. The tea will end with a short Victorian fashion show. The tea is $5 for adults, $3 for children (ages 12 and under). Each tea lasts about 45 minutes. Victorian Days at the Old Courthouse is sponsored by Cypress Lawn Heritage Foundation. For more information, go to www.historysmc.org/victorian-days.
