The people of Fredericksburg were excited when the Children’s Museum of Richmond opened a satellite location in their city in 2014. Since it opened its doors, 164,000 people have walked through them, and many didn’t have to pay full price for the experience. That’s because the museum does such a great job with fundraising. Now, it’s your turn to get in on the fundraising action with the 1st Annual Trikes for Tykes on Sunday, September 17.
Trikes for Tykes Event
Come to Hurkamp Park this Sunday for an afternoon of family fun. Purchase Pit Passes for the kids so they get access to the racers-only area, special activities, and an entry in the trike race. Passes are $15 for one child, $25 for two, and $30 for three or more children.
To get everyone in on the fun, organize a family and friend team for the Big Wheel Races. For a donation of $250, you’ll receive eight museum passes, a Family Pit Pass, and entry into the Big Wheel Race. Race teams are made up of four team members who will work together in a relay-style Big Wheel Tricycle Race. It’s a good idea for Big Wheel racers to be 13 years or older. Register online today.
This event will have children’s tricycle races, local vendors, food trucks, princesses, crafts, and other activities. Spend the day with the entire crew at this fun event. With your help, the Children’s Museum of Richmond will be able to continue to serve the people of Fredericksburg.
The Big Wheel Races will take place from 10 a.m. to noon. Then, the Trikes for Tykes Family Festival and kid races begin, running from noon until 2 p.m.
About the Children’s Museum of Richmond’s Fredericksburg Location
The Children’s Museum of Richmond is perfect for younger kids. Small children stay busy and learn quite a bit when they visit the library, bank, supermarket, and more. It’s hands-on learning in a fun environment. What more could you ask for from a children’s museum?
It’s worth visiting even if you have gone in the past. It tends to add a few items each year, so you will likely find something new every time you visit.
Along with the exhibits, the museum also has various events. It hosts 10 Minute Talks on a regular basis. Each talk has a different topic. There is also the Special Night for Special Needs and other events. Check the event calendar, and find an event to attend.
Saving Money at the Children’s Museum
Fundraisers help the museum offer discounted and free admissions from time to time. There are also some additional ways you can save. For instance, if you go on the first weekend of the month, you can use your Bank of America card to get in for free.
That’s just one option. You can also get a membership to the museum. Annual passes are $140 and cover two adults and all of the kids in the household under the age of 18. If you buy a membership, you can get into the museum for free. That includes all of the Children’s Museum of Richmond satellite locations.
