Join the Bartlett Depot Museum, 100 W. Railroad Avenue, Bartlett, on Tuesday, Aug. 6, to embellish a full size paper parasol.

This parasol is also the perfect way to learn about the 1893 and 1933 Chicago World's Fairs, the current exhibit, "Bartlett Goes to the Fairs" featured at the museum. Parasols were one of the many souvenirs available for purchase at the fair.

Space is limited and registration is required for this free event which begins at 6:30 p.m. Call 630-837-0800 to reserve your spot.
