All are welcome to celebrate Washington's birthday at Allaire Village from noon to 3 p.m. Feb. 16.
"Join the Allaire Villagers for a day of celebration!" says a prepared statement from Allaire. "At 1 p.m., the villagers of James P. Allaire’s Howell Iron Works Company invite you to join them in the Historic Chapel for an 1830’s-style Patriotic and Commemorative service in honor of General Washington!
Featuring patriotic orations, speeches and commemorative poetry of the period, the service pays tribute to the young nation’s beloved first president.
The service will be followed by a procession through the Village led by the Howell IronWorks Militia. Upon arriving at Mr. Allaire’s mansion, visitors may take a tour of the building and sample a piece of birthday cake in honor of George Washington.
The George Washington’s Birthday Celebration is presented free of charge by Allaire Village Incorporated. Join us for a day of family fun and history!
