First BBHC Family Fun Friday of 2012 on Jan. 13

2012 at the BBHC in Cody promises to be a great year for families—starting off with the first Family Fun Friday of the New Year on January 13, 3-7 p.m.

“Many of us may want to hunker down and hibernate through the winter,” observes Emily Buckles, the Center’s interpretive specialist and natural science educator. “Instead, we’re encouraging families to venture out to the Historical Center for some winter fun on Friday the 13th!”

On tap for the “Winter World” event are games, crafts, and lots of surprises to “keep your creative juices from freezing up by uncovering the mysteries of winter,” says the Center’s Education Department. “As a special treat, we are hosting singer/songwriter Bryan Ragsdale to perform for our family audience at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. He engages young and old alike to help sing and compose songs, too.” Ragsdale’s appearance is supported by the Wyoming Arts Council.

“All our Fun Friday activities are designed to help families do three things,” Buckles explains. “First, we want them to feel comfortable in a museum setting. Next, we encourage learning about the amazing natural and cultural resources we have to offer. Finally, we like to see families interacting with each other in an enjoyable, healthy environment.”

Families are encouraged to come as a group and participate in the activities together. The cost is $15/family and $10/family for museum patrons. A family-friendly—and budget-friendly—dinner will also be available for purchase. For more information, contact Buckles at or 307.578.4110.
