The High Point Museum plans an afternoon packed with Poke-adventures during its August 27 Pokémon Saturday event.
The Historical Park includes two Pokestops and two Pokegyms. During this special event, museum staff will be dropping lures, as well. Other special activities include Pokémon games, Pokémon contests, Pokémon crafts and Pokegym battles. Visitors are also encouraged to dress as their favorite Pokémon characters.
“We hope people will come out for some fun family time on the last weekend of summer before school starts for the fall,” says Edith Brady, director of High Point Museum. "And of course, all the regular museum exhibits and historical buildings will be open for visiting while they are here.”
Pokémon sightings both at Historical Park in inside High Point Museum have included: Dragonair, Ekans, Exeggcute, Gastly, Magikarp, Oddish, Pidgey, Pikachu, Psyduck, Raticate, Rattata, Staryu, Tangela and Weedle.
Refreshments including popcorn, lemonade and freeze pops will be available. As always, admission is free. The museum also has free WiFi. All three of the historical buildings will be open and the blacksmith will be conducting demonstrations throughout the day during Pokémon Saturday.
