Whether you are a long-time fan of Dr. Seuss stories, or have yet to be introduced to his classic book, “The Lorax”, all are invited to ‘Seuss Saturday’ in Hamilton, NY on Saturday, March 3rd. Join us as we celebrate Seuss stories old and new.
There will be a variety of activities for all ages at different times & locations throughout the village. Come to just one, or come to them all! Admission to the day’s programs and activities is free.
Gear up for Seuss Saturday! February 9th – March 2nd
“Where is The Lorax?” — The Lorax will be visiting different local businesses as he gets ready to celebrate Seuss Saturday. Stop by the Hamilton Public Library each week to look for clues about where he’s been and write down your best guess. If you guess correctly, your name will be entered into a Friday drawing to win a Dr. Seuss book from the Colgate Bookstore! We have four books to give away and you can participate once every week to try to track that elusive Lorax as he makes his way around town!
