Fun for all ages, the Catalina Island Museum’s upcoming First Fridays event will begin with Catalina Island BINGO.

A variety of prizes will be awarded and multiple rounds will be played. Once everyone is warmed up, the trivia contest will begin.

Trivia contestants are encouraged to explore the museum’s galleries to brush up on their island history or details about José Guadalupe Posada prior to the contest.

In addition, books in the Museum Store may be helpful as would a visit to the museum’s website for a look at its upcoming exhibitions.

The winner will receive a $100 American Express gift card.
