NEW YORK AREA GIRLS CELEBRATE CAROLINE® AT AMERICAN GIRL PLACE® EVENT —1812 Re-enactment Actors from Sackets Harbor Historic Site Join as Special Guests—
Date: November 16, 2012
On Friday, November 16, girls in the New York area will have a special opportunity to celebrate American Girl’s newest historical character, Caroline Abbott, while learning about her home in Sackets Harbor, NY, and its role in the War of 1812. The evening’s festivities include free craft activities, a scavenger hunt, and culminates with a Caroline-themed meal in the American Girl Cafe. In addition, 1812 re-enactment actors from Sackets Harbor Battlefield State Historic Site , which was recently designated as a historically significant site on New York State’s ‘Path Through History,’ will be dressed in period attire, greeting girls and their families and educating them about the War of 1812 with touch table artifacts.
5:30-7:00 p.m., Caroline’s Embroidered Card Craft (Free and Open to the Public)
Girls can learn how to stitch a colorful fireworks pattern on a patriotic greeting card—it looks like the fireworks that light the night sky in celebration of America’s independence.
5:30-7:00 p.m., American Girl Historical Character Scavenger Hunt (Free and Open to the Public)
Girls will go on a scavenger hunt throughout the store, collecting fun facts about each historical character along the way. They’ll discover what it was like to grow up in America’s past, find hidden clues to solve a fun puzzle, and receive a free American Girl poster at the end!
7:30 p.m., Caroline’s Celebration ($32 per person, reservations required)
Caroline loves to sail, and like a ship’s captain, she faces her bravest moments with her heart as a compass. Girls will learn about sailing, craft a paper sailboat, and enjoy a delicious meal. This portion of the event includes an American Girl book to take home, plus a keepsake booklet with activities and journaling pages to help commemorate the special day.
