10:00am – 4:00pm
Martin Luther King Jr. Day is peaceful for WNY kids, but it sure isn’t boring – with music, storytelling, crafts and activities all focused on celebrating Dr. King’s life and teachings. Throughout his life, Dr. King worked to achieve equality in America by fighting against racial discrimination. Join Explore & More as we honor the life and legacy of the iconic civil rights leader and celebrate themes of diversity, equality, freedom and resistance.
As part of celebrating Dr. King, we ask guests to bring and donate mittens, hats or socks that will be distributed to the children residing at Gerard Place. Receive $3 off admission for your donation.
