The Ogden Family Fair– A Coastal Celebration
By Ogden Education
On August 22, 2010 the Ogden Museum hosted its third annual Family Fair welcoming more than 600 friends, both old and young, out of the heat and humidity of the New Orleans summer for a Coastal Celebration. In honor of the remarkable environment that contributes so much to our local community and culture, children were invited to create oysters, shrimp and crabs sculptures out of newspaper, fanciful hobby sea-horses and whimsical pelican hats. Families were also treated to several performances throughout the day.
