Coastal Children’s Museum birthday celebration planned in Rockland

ROCKLAND, Maine — Come celebrate the second birthday of the opening of the Coastal Children’s Museum 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, June 18, at 75 Mechanic St. There will be lots of activities for the whole family including hula hooping workshops, magic shows by magician Rick Bernard, face painting, art activities, bubbles, free ice cream and much more. Admission will be free all day but with donations gratefully accepted.

The hula hoop workshop will include making and decorating your own hula hoop. This workshop, presented by C.J. Wong, was one of the favorite workshops of last summer.  Because of the cost of materials, space is limited to 10 children per session. To sign your child up in the hula hoop workshop, reserve your spot by emailing the museum at, calling at 385-1105 or stopping by the main office during opening hours (10 a.m.-4 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday, 1-4 p.m. Sunday).

Rick Bernard is a local magician who has been working in the local school district as a K-8 counselor for the past 34 years and is now devoting himself to his magic shows.

The day will also be a celebration of the entire Sharp’s Point South community with a giant flea market music, Model T rides and a firing of the Lime Kiln at the Sail Power Steam Museum.
