The Fresno Historical Society is 100 years old.
And it will celebrate with a Centennial Gala this Saturday, 7:30 pm to 11:45 pm, at Kearney Mansion.
If you haven’t read Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby,” here is what you need to know: Millionaire Jay Gatsby threw extravagant parties at his luxurious mansion.
Food, Drink, High-Wire Entertainment and a CasinoSays the Fresno Historical Society:
“At our Centennial Gala, the landmark Kearney Mansion and grounds will be transformed into the lush and splendid venue that is a cultural touchstone of that bygone era … champagne and crystal, rhinestones and pearls and plumage, whimsy and revelry, lively dancing from shimmy to burlesque, astonishing high-wire entertainments and magic, an array of epicurean delights, casino tables and a kaleidoscope of libations, a warm and welcoming historic home and veranda to investigate and, for those who wish to party like it’s 1919, a secret speakeasy.”
The award-winning Painted Table is catering the event. 1920s attire is encouraged.
