Welcome to Jonestown Free Family Day

Three great new neighbors are coming to Jonestown. The National Aquarium, Living Classrooms and Ronald McDonald House have all announced that they are building new facilities on Baltimore and Fayette streets in the next couple of years.

 

Welcome to the New Neighbors!

Welcome to the New Neighbors!

 

The cultural institutions of Jonestown are hosting an old-fashioned block party at the Jewish Museum of Maryland to welcome the newest additions to Baltimore’s oldest neighborhood.   – we’re offering a day of FREE activities including performances, activities and presentations to entertain the whole family.

 

Get patriotic with the Star-Spangled Banner Flag House, explore design with the Carroll Mansion, put together lamps for the Phoenix Shot Tower, and crafts with the Zion Church of the City of Baltimore. Chat with a ranger from Baltimore Heritage and stop by the McKim Center and Reginald F. Lewis Museum tables. We’re also  featuring a live animal encounter with the National Aquarium until 2:30 pm and our neighbors at Port Discovery will be stopping by for story telling at 1:30, 2:30 and 3:30.

 

And the icing on the cake… will be icing on an anniversary cake – marking 355 years since David Jones, the settler (rather than Davy Jones, the Monkee or Davy Jones, the locker owner) built his home here, giving his name to the falls, the expressway, and Baltimore’s newest attraction: Jonestown.

A Day at the Races and Young Frankenstein: Two films released 37 years apart but united by remarkably similar senses of humor fueled by a uniquely Jewish perspective on mad doctors and mad love. The central characters of both movies blend predictable feelings of persecution with a healthy irreverence for convention and a disregard for stuffy authority. Join another Jewish Doctor named Arnold T. Blumberg as he fills you in on some of the fun behind-the-scenes anecdotes that make the Marx Bros.’ A Day at the Races and Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein two of his all-time favorites in the annals of Jewish movie medicine.

 

 

Schedule for the Day:

 

11:00 am – Screening of Day at the Races

 

1:00 am – Lecture with Dr. Blumberg
