It's Bubble Day In Charlotte On Sunday, August 10th!

Bubble Day At the President James K. Polk State Historic Site: Sunday, August 10th

 

If you're looking for something fun and unusual to do this weekend with the kids, why not head out to the James K. Polk Historic Site for Bubble Day? What kid doesn't love playing with bubbles?

 

At Bubble Day, kids can experiment with big and small bubble blowing, mix up their own bubble slime, and see a demonstration of bubbles created from dry ice. They'll also be able to express their creativity by creating bubble-inspired artwork and adding their personal touch to a bubble mural from Bubble World. The really little ones won't need to feel left out as there will be a water play table to keep them engaged.

 

Even many long-term residents of Charlotte don't know that the President James K. Polk State Historic Site is home to the birthplace of our 11th President and the only Chief-of-State born in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina.  Located in Pineville, a town adjacent to Charlotte and bordering the Ballantyne area, the site sits on 21 of the original 150 acres owned by President Polk’s father, Samuel. Click here for some history about the birth and life of President Polk.

 

 

 

 

 

What Else Can You Find At The James K Polk State Historic Site?

 

~ Museum with exhibits on life in this area during Polk's childhood, his  rise to fame through politics, the Mexican-American War, as well as various temporary exhibits on a range of topics.

~ Short film about President Polk's life and his time in office.

~ Guided tours of the historic cabins on the grounds.

~ Nature trail and historically-inspired kitchen garden.

~ An 18th & 19th century family cemetery where President Polk's grandmother is buried.

George Souto hi George... your comment really made me laugh. I'm afraid, bubbly personality or not, I'd a tad too old to play with the kids! And none to bring with me to "fake it."

Nina Hollander - What a fun event planned for tomorrow! Who doesn't love bubbles? I know my daughter's kitties do too. 

American History C-Span is always educational! I really liked it and learned a lot too! I wish more people would spend more time reading American History and appreciating how those Pioneers and our first Presidents did so much to shape the country we live in today. Plus, the combination of celebrating bubbles on historic grounds will remind people of the simple pleasures that came along with lots of hard work to build log cabins and homes back then too! It took a lot of Presidents to get the country moving forward.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP hi Patricia... you make some excellent points about the value of having an event like this on a historical site. I'd just like to see more people reading... whatever they decide to read. I was exposed to reading about historical figures at a young age and have never lost my love of learning about them. 

I might have to test some bubbles on my Mr. Marlow!

Roy Kelley hi Roy... this event caught my eye. Although I live just maybe three miles away from this historical site I had not idea they had this event each year until just the other day.

Hi Nina Hollander,

This is an event that I would drive miles to take my three-year-old grandson to see.  I know he would have a fabulous time. (I would too!) 

This is an out-of-the-box event that should see lots of people!

I love bubbles - in the bath, in a glass, and in the air. Now, I get to play with Bubbles when my grandkids are around. What a treat.  This event sounds delightful, Nina. D

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD me too, Debb. Especially champagne bubbles in a lovely crystal flute! Unfortunately, our youngest grand is six months from turning 21 so no more playing with bubbles for me! But I remember those days!

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® hi Sheri... that's a great way to describe Bubbles Day -- an out of the box event! While I don't have to drive miles to the event (at best 3 of them), alas, I have no young kids in my life to take to it anymore.
