Sunday, November 11, 2018, marks the centennial anniversary date of Armistice Day, marking the ending of hostilities of World War I - The Great War. Armistice Day (or Rememberance Day) is observed on November 11 in most countries of the world to recall the end of the war, since hostilities formally ended "at the 11th hour (11 a.m.) of the 11th day of the 11th month", in accordance with the armistice signed by representatives of Germany and the Entente between 5:12 a.m. For decades in the United States, as elsewhere, Armistice was observed a holiday of peace, of sad rememberance and the joyful ending of war, and of a commitment to preventing war in the future. Join us for this special celebratory Bash in rememberance of this historical anniversary! The event includes festive live music, a costume contest for the best dressed man and woman dressed in attire from the 1914-1918 period, activities, no-host food and adult beverages (21 and over with ID to purchase), dancing, and a special end of evening toast in honor of this special monumental occasion! Come celebrate and remember this historic day in human history! The Museum's exhibition galleries will also be open 8 p.m. - 10 p.m. for viewing, to include its WWI exhibit " The Inland Northwest and the Great War."
