Museum in the Streets, Selfies, and SummerFest 2018

Have you noticed these historic plaques around town? The Ridgefield Historical Society proudly maintains the

local Museum in the Streets heritage discovery trail and we are running a selfie contest on Saturday, July 21,

from 10 am to 4 pm, in celebration of SummerFest 2018. Take a photo of yourself (and family and friends) with

a plaque at ten or more locations and the first 25 participants will win a $5 gift card donated by Deborah Ann’s

Sweet Shoppe! All participants will be entered to win the grand prize: a one-year $100 Family Sustainer

membership to the Historical Society. Visit our tent at SummerFest (location will be announced a few days

before the event) anytime between 10 am and 4 pm, show us your pics, and be one of the first to receive a gift

card. To find all 30 of the Museum in the Streets locations, go to

the-streets to download the map, pick one up at the kiosk at the corner of Main Street and Bailey Avenue or the

Branchville Train Station, or stop by Deborah Ann’s Sweet Shoppe or the Historical Society during public hours

(Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 1 to 5 pm).

Gift cards are limited to one per person or family. Please note that by submitting your photos you agree to

allow the Historical Society to use them for marketing and promotional purposes. For more information, call
