A FREE “Living History” community event
Where: Sunnyvale Heritage Park Museum 570 E. Remington Drive
When: Saturday, September 10, 2022, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
A ‘Walk Through Time’ will take all visitors, young and old, on a journey through local history, beginning with life 200+ years ago, then moving on through time to experience the evolution of Sunnyvale and its neighboring communities. Learn about the different groups of people who called this area home, catch a glimpse of their way of life, and experience hands-on activities from those long-ago days. Identify some of Sunnyvale’s earliest companies and what they brought to a changing city. Learn about the innovators of the late 1960s and how their contributions brought Sunnyvale from an agricultural community to the high-tech city identified today as The Heart of Silicon Valley.
We invite you to join the fun – dress up in your favorite period costumes or show off your cultural ethnic attire.
Visitors might want to carry a reusable bag or backpack to bring home the items handcrafted at our booths.
