HAMILTON — Whether you are a long-time fan of Dr. Seuss stories, or have yet to be introduced to his classic book, “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!,” all are invited to Seuss Saturday on March 2.
There will be a variety of activities for all ages at different times and locations throughout the village. Come to just one, or come to them all. Admission to the day’s programs and activities is free. Pick up an official Seuss Saturday Passport at Hamilton Public Library and collect stamps from all four events to win prizes.
Gear up for Seuss Saturday Feb. 8 through March 1
“Where is The Cat in the Hat?” — The Cat in the Hat will be visiting different local businesses as he gets ready to celebrate Seuss Saturday. Stop by the Hamilton Public Library each week to look for clues about where he’s been and write down your best guess. If you guess correctly, your name will be entered into a Friday drawing to win a Dr. Seuss book from the Colgate book store. There are four books to give away and participants can participate once every week to try to track that elusive Cat as he makes his way around town.
