19th Century Egg Roll - CLAIBORNE COUNTY

Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum   120 Mars/DeBusk Parkway, Harrogate, Tennessee 37752

Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum

120 Mars/DeBusk Parkway, Harrogate, Tennessee 37752

During the 19th century, Egg Rolls were a popular pastime in Washington, D.C. Originally held at the United States Capitol, and by some accounts first suggested by Dolley Madison, public egg rolls became a presidential tradition in 1878, with the first White House Egg Roll. Informal egg rolls, however, were held throughout the city during this period, and were perhaps even held at the Lincoln White House.

On Saturday, April 13, you can experience a 19th century egg roll as it was practiced during Lincoln's lifetime! All participants will receive a special wooden egg, and will be divided into age groups (Toddlers and Pre-K, Kindergarden - First Grade, Second - Third Grade, and Fourth - Fifth Grade) to roll their eggs to the finish line. Sign-ups will begin at 3:00pm, and races will begin to take place at 3:30pm! Children will also have the opportunity to receive balloons, have their faces painted, and visit the museum. This is a free event, but there are only 100 slots available for children. To secure your child's spot, please make certain to reserve your free ticket for a guaranteed spot in the races. For more information, please contact Program Coordinator Natalie Sweet at natalie.sweet@lmunet.edu.

Kentucky Mountain Laurel Festival - BELL COUNTY

PINEVILLE, KY

PINEVILLE, KY

The Kentucky Mountain Laurel Festival is one of Kentucky's oldest festivals, finding its start in 1931, when Mrs. Annie Walker Burns established the festival as a way to honor her famous ancestor, Dr. Thomas Walker, a pioneer explore. Since that time, the devotion and hospitality of so many, along with the resonant history of the festival, have enabled this beautiful event to thrive for eighty years.

 

We think you'll enjoy our quaint and historic town nestled in the Appalachian foothills of Bell County, Kentucky where Southern hospitality reigns throughout. The festival features many events including a Queen's Coronation. Many Queens have been celebrated in song, verse and festival for centuries, it's only suitable that our time honored festival garland a Queen with our native Mountain Laurel. We open our homes to these accomplished and lovely young Queen Candidates, selected by and to represent their Kentucky College or University in the annual pageant. During the Coronation, held at an exquisite outdoor amphitheater near the close of the weekend, each Queen curtseys to the Governor of Kentucky- and in turn he crowns the winning Queen.

The Princess and the Pea - Barter Players - LEE COUNTY

Lee Theatre  41676 W Morgan Ave, Pennington Gap, Virginia 24277

Lee Theatre

41676 W Morgan Ave, Pennington Gap, Virginia 24277

The story tells of a prince who wants to marry a princess, but is having difficulty finding a suitable wife. Something is always wrong with those he meets, and he cannot be certain they are real princesses because they have bad table manners or they are too fat or thin or not beautiful. One stormy night a young woman drenched with rain seeks shelter in the prince's castle. She claims to be a princess, so the prince's mother decides to test their unexpected, unwitting guest by placing a pea in the bed she is offered for the night, covered by 20 mattresses and 20 feather-beds. In the morning, the guest tells her hosts that she endured a sleepless night, kept awake by something hard in the bed that she is certain has bruised her. The prince rejoices. Only a real princess would have the sensitivity to feel a pea through such a quantity of bedding, so the two are married. $10
