A collection of American-made glass fishing floats will take center stage in Lincoln City this Saturday, April 20, as the North Lincoln County Historical Museum unveils its new permanent exhibit.
The exhibit is made up of floats from the collection of Nick Simpson, who has been studying and collecting these quintessential coastal keepsakes for more than 55 years. Simpson and members of the float community will be on hand to answer questions about the exhibit, which will be on permanent display in the upstairs gallery. The museum will also have some exclusive floats for sale, made by Ro Purser, as well as fishing float coloring sheets for kids.
The opening will run from 11 am to 3 pm at the museum, 4907 SW Hwy. 101. For details, call 541-996-6614.
