Get ready for your Easter celebration by making a special paper bonnet and creating other decorations bound to add color to any celebration this Saturday and Sunday, April 1-2, at the historic Little White School Museum, 72 Polk Street (Polk at Jackson), Oswego.

Whether or not you decide to create your own Easter craft this weekend, be sure to stop by to see the museum’s new seasonal exhibit, “Easter Bonnets on Parade.” Mounted by museum volunteer Stephanie Just, the annual exhibit features colorful and stylish men’s and women’s headgear from eras past placed throughout the museum’s permanent.

To compliment the Easter hat displays, the museum’s temporary exhibit case is loaded with vintage Easter cards and other items related to the holiday selected from the museum’s collections. Featured this year is a poster advertising the latest looks in women’s hats for the 1898-1899 season then available at Maggie Shepard’s Oswego millinery shop.

Regular museum hours are Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, noon to 4 p.m. While museum admission is free, donations are always gratefully accepted.
