DEMING – More than a year removed from what was supposed to be a festive grand opening, Deming’s Play Sharity Children’s Museum and Resource Library staff will try again in a spectacular way.
City officials have agreed to block off the 300 block of Tin Street for the grand opening at 301 S. Tin St. from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, August 28, 2021. Deming Play Sharity leading member Kayln Blazak invites the public to join in their long-awaited celebration that will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony, music, vendors, food trucks and giveaways to the first 100 children in attendance.
The COVID-19 pandemic halted plans for the official grand opening date back in March of 2020. The children’s museum at 301 S. Tin Street was involved in the state’s lockdown for non-essential business and services in an attempt to slow the coronavirus and shut down for the better part of the past year.
