Even at twenty-nine years old, the Children's Museum of New Hampshire in Dover is still acting young. But the celebration that's taking place at the Museum on September 23rd will be attracting all kinds of people, old and young. It's their annual birthday-bash.

The Children's Museum throws an event every year to commemorate their birthday. The parties have always been open to the public, and the Museum warmly extends their invitations out to any family that wants to come and celebrate with them.

“Even though it's our birthday, we want the kids to feel like it's their party,” says Heidi Duncanson, the Director of Marketing at the Children's Museum, “We enjoy throwing fun parties for our whole community.”

The way that the Museum sets up their parties is not unlike a birthday party that a parent would throw for their child. Every year, local neighbors donate cake and ice cream to the event for all those in attendance to enjoy. This year, local Dover businesses like Riverbend Pizza and Subs, and Duston's Bakery are just a couple of the suppliers of birthday treats.

In addition to the great food, the Museum is offering a variety of entertainment, staying true to the larger-than-life standards of a birthday-bash. Party games will be stationed around the Museum, and participants will have the opportunity to win prizes. The kids can also personalize their own glittering birthday crowns with stickers and other decorations.
