Monroe — It is only March and the weather may be cold, but Museum Village is planning a sizzling season of fun for everyone. In addition to the return of the circus during the Memorial Day Weekend and the Civil War Re-enactment during the Labor Day weekend, Museum Village is introducing more events for the community. This year’s season kicks off in May with a bang. New events to mark down on the calendar include an Auto Show and the beginning of weekly cruise nights on Tuesdays. Throughout the month, the Wallkill River School will be holding demonstrations on Sundays in May. Museum Village is also sponsoring a blood drive in May to continue to give back to the community. The museum is looking at new partnerships and events that will encourage families to learn about history and engage the community.
