Our most solemn holiday. "Decoration Day" originally May 30 was chosen because no battles fell on this day. By 1890 all states were recognizing this as a holiday. In 1971 it became an official federal holiday,moved to the last Monday in May and renamed Memorial Day, to remember all our soldiers of war. We have many traditions,
un-officially this mark's the begining of summer, we visit cemeteries, go on picnics, have parades and some wear red poppies, a tradition that began with WW1. A national moment of remembrance takes place at 3:00pm your local time every memorial day.
Enjoy your day. Be safe.

****INTERMISSION COUNTDOWN****
Good Evening, Folks! We hope all of you have remained safe and healthy throughout the statewide shutdown. Even though we have been on intermission over the past few weeks, we have taken the opportunity to refurbish much of our equipment and train our staff with safety guidelines for the next show. We are targeting May 1st to light up the screen, pending the Florida stay at home order is lifted and the state follows through with their plan on beginning to allow the reopening of businesses that can practice social distancing. Some states and municipalities have allowed drive in theaters to open. We are ready to safely open our doors for many of you that want a chance to get out of the house while remaining in your car. We certainly would carefully follow all guidelines that remain in place on a state and national level. While we will light up our screen soon, what remains clear is policies on social distancing will remain in effect for the foreseeable future. So let’s say that countdown to showtime starts now!

Fantastic museum. Our group of ladies enjoyed a memorable visit with Joy Lynn on Tuesday. We learned so much about Dade City and its history. We will definitely be back. What a super place right in our own town.
As Dade City continues to grow, it still has that 'small town' feel
