      Roar into the 1920s with the Marquette Regional History Center

      Speakeasies, Model Ts and flapper girls were all popular fixtures during this time in history.

      This Saturday, the Marquette Regional History Center wants to take you on a trip back to the Roaring Twenties.

      "Our Saturday at the Center program is roaring in with the 1920s, so think everything 20s. We're going to have events. We'll have dancing characters from the era," said museum educator, Betsie Rutz.

      On the heels of the Great Depression, the '20s were considered a festive time in American History and a step into modern society.

      Charlie Chaplin, Duke Ellington and Babe Ruth were a few popular people of the day.

      "Charlie Chaplin was a silent film star in the '20s, and a lot of people remember him for his antics. He's going to be hanging out around the History Center on Saturday and doing skits on the half hour," Rutz added.

      The event will characterize what times were like in the fascinating era with a scavenger hunt through the exhibits, games and performances of various dance styles from the 1920s.

      Stop in and find out why the 1920s are called "roaring" this Saturday from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.

      All ages are welcome.

      Admission prices are: Adult $7, Senior $6, Student $3, 12 and under are $2.
